Effective August 1, 2014, the cost for high volume users of the JUSTICE case information will increase from $300 to $500 monthly, as new services are added.
According to Jennifer Rasmussen, Deputy Administrator for Technology, “There has been no price increase for high volume users of JUSTICE case information in the 10 years the service has been offered.”
Current options for Accessing JUSTICE court case information are:
- Free Access
- Law Enforcement, County Attorneys, Public Defenders, select government agencies, courts, Domestic Violence Advocacy Organizations, Legal Aid, and Nebraska Legal Clinics
- $15 per search (up to 30 cases – time limited, no images)
- Subscriber to NE.gov (pay $50 annually for 10 users)
- [Monthly volume rate plan] Pay $500 for ‘volume’ searching (no per-click charge)
- [Pay-per-click plan] Pay $1 for every case ‘detail’ viewed – no extra charge for documents
JUSTICE fees have been reinvested in technology to support the over 15 million document images; free eFiling in all 189 trial courts; a new online feature for searching by judgment date, and the integration of Douglas District and Separate Juvenile Courts which added millions of case records to the earlier system.
Additionally, an Appellate Courts Case Search is nearing completion. The Appellate Court feature will enable users to access cases filed in Nebraska’s Supreme Court and Court of Appeals, including case details now available through the trial court system search.
“Over the years, the Supreme Court and Nebraska.gov both have invested enormous resources in projects that have directly benefitted subscribers of court services," remarked Rasmussen. “The price increase will allow us to continue that drive to provide new and better access to online services.”
