The Nebraska Court of Appeals
THE NEBRASKA COURT OF APPEALS is the state's intermediate appellate court. There are currently six judges, who sit in panels or divisions of three judges each. The task of the Court of Appeals is to provide the citizens of Nebraska with clear, impartial and timely resolution of appealed orders and judgments as provided by law. The Court of Appeals is generally the first court to hear appeals of judgments and orders in criminal, juvenile, civil, domestic relations and probate matters. In addition, the Court of Appeals has appellate jurisdiction over decisions originating in a number of state administrative boards and agencies. Its determination of an appeal is final unless the Nebraska Supreme Court agrees to hear the matter. The Court hears cases in its courtroom on the second floor of the State Capitol but is authorized to hear oral arguments throughout the state, sitting in cities such as North Platte, Omaha, Papillion, Norfolk and Kearney. The Court sits outside of Lincoln four to six months out of the year. Oral arguments before the Nebraska Court of Appeals are open, and the public is welcome to visit.
