Nebraska Revised Statute 25-1629.04

Chapter 25 Section 1629.04


One-step qualifying and summoning system; procedure.

After a proposed jury list has been selected, the jury commissioner may require that each person listed on the proposed jury list be served with a summons, issued by the jury commissioner, to appear before the court at a time and place certain for jury duty. The jury qualification questionnaire may be sent together with the summons in a single mailing to a prospective juror. The summons may be served upon each juror by first-class, certified, or registered mail, or by personal service by a jury commissioner, the clerk, or other person authorized by the court. After the initial appearance of the juror, he or she shall appear for jury service in any court of the county as directed by the judge of any court during the term of jury service of the juror.

No person shall be guilty of contempt of court pursuant to section 25-1611 for failing to respond to a summons sent by first-class mail.
