The first section includes a brief summary of the background for the “no contribution” rule along with a discussion of a recent case which relaxes the stringent requirements for recovery. The second section deals exclusively with the Nebraska law on this issue and endeavors to determine Nebraska's exact position as to the allowance of contribution between negligent joint tortfeasors.
