State of Nebraska, appellee, v. Tyler T., appellant

Case Year: 
2010
State of Origin: 
Nebraska

The Court found that given the therapeutic component of problem-solving-court programs, each and every action taken in such a proceeding need not be a matter of record.  However, when a judge of a problem-solving court conducts a hearing and enters an order affecting the terms of the juvenile's probation, the proceeding must be on the record. Where a liberty interest is implicated in problem-solving-court proceedings, an individual's due process rights must be respected.
