Case Summary

On December 16, 2009, several registered sex offenders residing in Nebraska brought suit against the State of Nebraska in the United States District Court for the District of Nebraska under 42 U.S.C. § 1983 to challenge the constitutionality of the Nebraska Sex Offender Registration Act. The state law banned individuals on the sex offender registry from accessing social media, criminalized their use of websites, and required consent to search.

On December 16, 2009, several registered sex offenders residing in Nebraska brought suit against the State of Nebraska in the United States District Court for the District of Nebraska under 42 U.S.C. § 1983 to challenge the constitutionality of the Nebraska Sex Offender Registration Act. The state law banned individuals on the sex offender registry from accessing social media, criminalized their use of websites, and required consent to search. The plaintiffs claimed that this Act departed significantly from the previous sex offender registry and violated the U.S. and Nebraska Constitution:

1. by imposing retroactive criminal punishment for past acts;

2. by punishing a single offense twice;

3. by imposing a cruel and unusual punishment;

4. by permitting a continuous and unreasonable search and seize by law enforcement;

5. by violating the right to due process;

6. by violating the right to equal protection of the law and constituting special legislation;

7. by violating the right to free speech;

8. by substantially impairing the contractual plea agreements entered into by some Plaintiffs; and

9. by violating the separation of powers mandated by the Nebraska Constitution.

The plaintiff sought declaratory relief and permanent injunction and demanded a jury trial. The case was initially assigned to Magistrate Judge David L. Piester, but was later reassigned to District Judge Richard G. Kopf, then to Magistrate Judge Zwart.

On December 30, 2009, the plaintiffs moved for a preliminary injunction. Judge Kopf mostly denied this motion, holding that the Nebraska statute did nothing more than what was permitted or required by the United States Congress. Nonetheless, he did grant part of the preliminary injunction: As applied to individuals who had been convicted of sex offenses but had completed the entirely of their sentences, Nebraska was temporarily prohibited from enforcing the consent to search requirement and the prohibition against use of social media websites accessible to minors. 2009 WL 5184328.

Meanwhile, the plaintiffs attempted to litigate the same claims in state court. On January 7, 2010, Judge Kopk requested that the courts of the State of Nebraska refrain from issuing any orders enjoining Nebraska’s Sex Offender Registration Act and related legislative bills while cases were pending. On March 15, 2010, the plaintiffs amended the complaint, adding plaintiffs. In April, both the defendants and plaintiffs moved for summary judgment.

On August 16, 2010, both the plaintiffs’ and defendant’s motion for summary judgment were denied in part and granted in part. The court held that the consent to search requirement and internet monitoring requirements violated the Fourth Amendment. However, the court held largely in the defendant's favor, finding that: (1) the in-person reporting, public disclosure, and “offense of conviction” methodology provisions did not violate the Ex Post Facto Clause and double jeopardy; (2) the registration and public notification requirements did not violate substantive due process; (3) the amendments were also not void for vagueness; (4) the act did not violate due process or free speech rights. 734 F.Supp.2d 882.

A period of discovery followed between 2010 and 2012. On April 19, 2011, the court approved in part and denied in part the plaintiffs’ motion to compel, holding legislative intent behind amendments was relevant, but that the plaintiffs' request for documents was overly broad. 788 F.Supp.2d 975.

Ultimately, the plaintiffs prevailed on October 17, 2012. Judge Kopf found that the statutes violated the First Amendment, the Due Process Clause, and the Ex Post Facto Clause. 898 F.Supp.2d 1086. The plaintiffs were awarded attorney fees of $292,564.88. 2012 WL 6681855.

The case is now closed.

MEMORANDUM AND ORDER - Counsel for Plaintiffs shall advise any state judge before whom they appear seeking similar relief to the relief sought here that I respectfully request that said judge grant no relief. Counsel shall provide the judge with a copy of this order. In addition to the normal electronic notice, the Clerks office shall call Plaintiffs' counsel and counsel for the State of Nebraska and advise them of this order. If a state court enters an order that conflicts with mine, there is high likelihood that I will take further more direct action to stop any such interference. In a spirit of comity and respect, I hope to avoid such an unseemly dispute by issuing this order. Ordered by Judge Richard G. Kopf. (GJG) (Entered: 01/04/2010)
