Bellevue, NE is the oldest city in the state of Nebraska. Meaning "Beautiful View" in French, Bellevue sits at an elevation of 985 feet overlooking the Missouri River to the east. The third largest city in the state, Bellevue is home to 44,300 residents. The city's economic growth benefited greatly from construction of the Offut Air Force Base's bomber plant during World War II and subsequent military operations which doubled the city's population. Today Bellevue's friendly mid-west atmosphere and activities draw residents and visitors alike to attractions such as the Bellevue Keno Casino, the Fontenelle Nature Association, and the RiverFest.
This laid-back community counts numerous Bellevue lawyers amongst its residents. Whatever the issue you may face, Bellevue lawyers can help. Bellevue lawyers routinely handle business, family, real estate, personal injury, medical malpractice, and other cases.
Bellevue attorneys recently litigated a dispute between the city and pro-life advocates. The advocates, members of Rescue the Heartland, sued Bellevue's police chief for numerous false arrests made under a residential picketing ordinance. The advocates argued that the obscure city ordinance was a violation of their 1st amendment right to assembly and free speech, and that the police were aware they were not breaking the law during their peaceful residential protests but arrested them anyway. The lawsuit was decided in favor of the advocates in 2009.
The Nebraska judicial branch is structured as county courts, district courts, a court of appeals, and the state supreme court.
