The Rule against Contribution and Its Status in Nebraska

Donald R. Wilson

It is the purpose of this article to present two distinct phases of the law of contribution between joint tortfeasors. 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.
