Nebraska Revised Statute 25-2801

Chapter 25



Each county court shall have a Small Claims Department which shall be designated the Small Claims Court.



  • Small claims court is a department of county court, and as such, small claims court does not have general equity jurisdiction. Scherbak v. Kissler, 245 Neb. 10, 510 N.W.2d 318 (1994).

  • In an appeal to the district court from the Small Claims Court, a party has the right to appear by his own counsel. Simon v. Lieberman, 193 Neb. 321, 226 N.W.2d 781 (1975).
