Nebraska Revised Statute 29-2287
Restitution; effect on civil action.
(2) The findings in the sentencing hearing and the fact that restitution was required or paid shall not be admissible as evidence in a civil action and shall have no legal effect on the merits of a civil action.
(3) Any restitution paid by the defendant to the victim shall be set off against any judgment in favor of the victim in a civil action arising out of the facts or events which were the basis for the restitution. The court trying the civil action shall hold a separate hearing to determine the validity and amount of any setoff asserted by the defendant.
