According to Nebraska law, it is not unlawful to intercept a wire, electronic, or oral communication when the interceptor is a party to the conversation or one of the parties to the communication has given prior consent, unless the communication is intercepted for the purpose of committing any criminal or tortious act. Neb. Rev. Stat. § 86-290-1-b, c. Neither is it unlawful to intercept communications available to the general public or signals causing harmful interference. Neb. Rev. Stat § 86-290-1.
It is illegal to intentionally disclose, or publish, the contents of any wire, electronic, or oral communication, knowing or having reason to know that the information was obtained through illegal interception. Neb. Rev. Stat § 86-290-1.
Only injunctive relief can be sought for a first offense; subsequent violation gives rise to a $500 fine. Neb. Rev. Stat § 86-290-5-b.
In addition, any person whose communication is intercepted or disclosed may recover in a civil action from the person or entity which engaged in the violation such relief as a judge deems appropriate, including injunctive or declaratory relief and reasonable attorney fees and other litigation costs. Neb. Rev. Stat § 86-297-1.
