IMPORTANT INFORMATION FROM THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT - DISTRICT OF NEBRASKA

Friday, January 25, 2008

The Nebraska Judicial Council took the following actions at its meeting on January 25, 2008:

Decided that counsel should no longer electronically file petitions to enter pleas of guilty and plea agreements before hearings. The parties must provide the court with advanced copies of the documents at least twenty-four hours before the plea hearing, and bring the originals of the documents to the hearing. Following the hearing, the documents will be uploaded into CM/ECF. As a result of the judge's decision, the "petition to enter plea of guilty and plea agreement" events have been removed from the attorney menu in CM/ECF.
Approved amendments to the Bankruptcy Court's Local Rules. The local rules will be forwarded to the Eighth Circuit for approval.

On January 16, 2008, the Administrative Office of the U.S. Courts authorized clerk's offices to keep indices of civil judgments and orders in electronic form. Users may now access judgments and orders directly from the docket sheet in PACER or at the public terminals at the courthouses. The civil judgment index report has been removed from CM/ECF.
