Monitoring Information:

Nebraska documents court performance relevant to time standards by producing local computer-generated reports with information compiled at statewide levels. Reports/summaries on local and district-wide performance are received by magistrates, clerks of court, and judges. Reports/summaries on local and state-wide performance are received by the State Court Administrator, AOC staff, and Supreme Court members.

Reports are considered internal working documents and are not currently available to the public.
