Cases may be commenced under Neb. Rev. Stat. § 25-501 through an E‑Filing; however, service of the initial pleading and the summons shall not be made by E-Service. The electronic filing of a complaint or other initial pleading from which printed copies can be made shall be deemed compliant with the requirement of Neb. Rev. Stat. § 25-504.01 to supply copies of a complaint. The court clerk shall print sufficient copies for service with the summons. The party filing such complaint or pleading electronically shall be deemed to have consented to pay the reasonable expense of printing such copies. The summons and any required attachments to the summons shall be provided in printed form by the court clerk and shall be served in accordance with Neb. Rev. Stat. § 25‑505.01 et seq., unless service is waived or otherwise excused by law. If an attorney who has entered an appearance in a case has not registered for E-Filing, then service of the e-filed pleading upon that attorney shall be made as required by law.
