§ 6-1101. Scope and purpose of rules.

   These Rules govern pleading in civil actions filed on or after January 1, 2003. They apply to the extent not inconsistent with statutes governing such matters.

   These Rules shall be construed and administered to secure the just, speedy, and inexpensive determination of every action.

   These Rules govern pleading in a forcible entry and detainer action only to the extent they are consistent with a court's jurisdiction over such actions and are not in conflict with law governing such actions.

   Where reference is made in these rules to "filing," "service," or "notice," it is presumed to mean electronic filing, service, or notice by registered users as defined in § 2-201(I) unless the context requires otherwise.


   The Rules are authorized by §§ 25-801.01 and 42-353. Jurisdiction to hear a forcible entry and detainer action is discussed in Cummins Mgmt. v. Gilroy, 266 Neb. 635, 667 N.W.2d 538 (2003).

Rule 1 amended May 19, 2004. Renumbered and codified as § 6-1101, effective July 18, 2008; § 6-1101 amended June 9, 2021, effective January 1, 2022.
