This hour-long presentation will give an overview of Franks v. Delaware and its interpretation by Nebraska and the Federal Courts. Specific cases and motions will be discussed to aid practitioners in understanding how to properly raise a collateral attack under Franks, along with the potential pitfalls to a Franks challenge. You will learn how to make a substantial preliminary showing to the trial court as required by Franks. You will also learn how to properly conduct a Franks hearing if the court authorizes one after you have made the requisite showing.
