Scotts Bluff County - District Court

The District Courts of Nebraska.

NEBRASKA IS divided into 12 Judicial Districts encompassing all 93 counties.

Across the state, district boundaries are aligned with county lines - some districts include just one county, while others include as many as 17. Each district has at least one district court location, although a judge may preside in more than one district court within a judicial district, particularly in rural areas of the state. There are currently 56 district judges.

District courts have original jurisdiction in all felony cases, equity cases, domestic relations cases, and civil cases where the amount in controversy involves more than $52,000. District courts also have appellate jurisdiction in certain matters arising out of county court. They also serve as appellate courts in administrative appeals, where they review the record of testimony and evidence from the lower court or tribunal and issue an opinion and ruling in the case. District court decisions may be appealed to the Nebraska Court of Appeals and/or to the Nebraska Supreme Court.
