INFORMATION ABOUT GREELEY COUNTY DISTRICT COURT

The Greeley County Clerk of the District Court is an ex-officio office. The term of the office is four years. Each county in the State of Nebraska has a clerk of the district court. In counties with less than 7,000 the county board and district court judge determine whether there should be a clerk of the district court. If a clerk does not exist, the county clerk is the ex officio clerk of the district court.

Greeley County is the 8th Judicial District, which also includes Custer, Garfield, Howard, Loup, Sherman, Valley, and Wheeler Counties. Although the District Courts have concurrent jurisdiction with County Courts, District Courts primarily hear all felony criminal cases, equity cases, domestic relations cases and civil cases involving more than $51,000. The District Court also functions as an Appellate Court in deciding appeals from County Courts and various administrative agencies.
