LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - The Nebraska Supreme Court has settled a dispute between Omaha and the city’s police union over contract negotiating deadlines.

The Supreme Court said in a ruling issued Thursday that it wouldn’t reopen negotiations of the police contract for 2014.

The High Court refused to overturn an earlier ruling that determined the city had failed to provide written notice by April 1, 2013, that it wanted to negotiate the contract.

Without written notice, the contract automatically renewed for another year.

The court said city officials didn’t prove the union had agreed to negotiate without receiving formal notice.
