Omaha, NE asked in Election Law for Nebraska

Q: In Nebraska, can they keep an eviction on your record if you never received the summons to the court hearing?

I was given my 7 day notice, and started moving, but haven't been able to get everything out in time. They had the court date, but I never received anything telling me when court was, so they ruled in favor of my landlord. I was only going to go to try to keep the eviction off my record. They changed the locks on me 3 days after the court date, giving me two weeks, from 9 to 5 to get the rest of my things.

A: If a court case was filed, it would be a matter of public record. Even if you were successful in defending against the eviction action, the case number and details would be public record.
