§ 2-220. Registration.

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

   (A) Only attorneys licensed to practice law in Nebraska may use E-Filing. Any attorney so registered may make an entry of appearance through E-Filing.

   (1) Registration for E-Filing is mandatory for all Nebraska attorneys making any filing or appearance in an appellate court, regardless if the filing is by paper or electronically. Registration for E-Filing requires an account with the court-authorized service provider and requires a separate annual maintenance fee as determined by the court-authorized service provider.

   (2) Pro Hac Vice and other authorized user registration.

   (a) Attorneys admitted Pro Hac Vice in a particular case pursuant to Neb. Ct. R. § 3-122 may utilize E-Filing under these rules but only through Nebraska counsel with whom the attorney is associated.

   (b) Attorneys admitted Pro Hac Vice in a particular appellate case pursuant to Neb. Ct. R. § 3-122 may register for E-Notice with the Clerk of the Nebraska Supreme Court and Court of Appeals by providing an e-mail address in writing. E-mail addresses shall be in compliance with § 2-220(B). Any change to e-mail addresses or discontinuation of E-Notice must be made in writing to the Clerk of the Supreme Court and Court of Appeals.

   (c) Indian Child Welfare Act tribal representatives. For cases under the Nebraska Indian Child Welfare Act, tribal representatives may utilize E-Filing with proper registration.

   (d) Self-represented litigant E-Notice. Self-represented litigants who have Internet and e-mail capability may register for E-Notice in a particular case by submitting a written request to the Clerk of the Nebraska Supreme Court and Court of Appeals. E-mail addresses shall be in compliance with § 2-220(B). Any change to e-mail addresses or discontinuation of E-Notice shall be made in writing to the Clerk of the Supreme Court and Court of Appeals. E-mail addresses of self-represented litigants in appeals which have been concluded may be purged by the Clerk of the Supreme Court and Court of Appeals, from time to time, without notice to the self-represented litigant.

   (B) E-mail addresses.

   (1) E-mail addresses for all electronic services as defined in § 2-200 offered by the court or its authorized service provider cannot exceed 50 characters. Only one e-mail address per user will be permitted for E-Notice.

   (2) E-Notice correspondence shall be sent electronically from the following e-mail address: nsc.justicebas@nebraska.gov. User e-mail accounts should be set up to receive all e-mails from that e-mail address. Do not reply to the above e-mail address. No user may transmit documents to nsc.justicebas@nebraska.gov.

   (3) E-Service correspondence shall be sent electronically from the following e-mail address: ne-support@egov.com. User e-mail accounts should be set up to receive all e-mails from that e-mail address. Do not reply to the above e-mail address. No user may transmit documents to ne-support@egov.com.

   (4) Until such time as a Nebraska attorney registers for E-Filing as required in subsection (A), documents delivered via E-Notice will be sent to the initial e-mail address provided to the Nebraska Supreme Court Attorney Services Division pursuant to Neb. Ct. R. § 3-803(C). After registration with the court-authorized service provider, all e-mail addresses for E-Notice and E-Service shall be maintained by the attorney through the attorney’s court-authorized service provider E-Filing account.

   (C) Each registered user is responsible for maintaining valid contact information. When a user's contact information changes, the E-Filing user shall promptly update his or her profile with the court-authorized service provider and provide updated information to the Clerk of the Supreme Court and Court of Appeals. If an E-Filing user has a pending case before the appellate courts, the user shall promptly notify all parties of such information change. E-Service or E-Notice upon an obsolete e-mail address shall constitute valid service where the user has not updated the account profile with the new e-mail address. Mere usage of a new or different e-mail address or physical address in a document filed using E-Filing does not satisfy the requirements of this subsection for an update to the user’s profile with the court-authorized service provider or the Clerk of the Supreme Court and Court of Appeals. 

   (D) Failure to Register or maintain contact information. Failure of a Nebraska attorney to register for E-Filing as required by § 2-220(A)(1) or to maintain valid and up-to-date contact information may be enforced by any appropriate sanction or order of the appellate court, or by appropriate disciplinary procedures. 

§ 2-220 amended October 19, 2016.
