IT IS HEREBY ORDERED: Nebraska General Rules 1.6(b) mandates that persons entering the United Stated District Court for the District of Nebraska may be required to show a marshal or other United States District Court security officers a valid photo ID to enter the courthouse.

A list of potential trial witnesses, named Plaintiffs and those who may attend the trial, who may not have “valid photo ID”, are attached hereto as Exhibit “A”. The Court hereby orders that, pursuant to Nebraska General Rule 1.6(k), those class members and named Plaintiffs lacking a “valid photo ID” are exempted from Nebraska General Rule 1.6(b) and will be permitted to enter the courthouse, if they are escorted by one or more of the following individuals: Shanon J.
