Hello and thanks for submitting this interesting question. A bill of exceptions is prepared by the clerk of the trial court. It is part of the trial transcript and it is filed separately from the brief. The brief would refer to the BofE for the errors appealed from. See: Rule 2-105 (B) http://www.supremecourt.ne.gov/supreme-court-rules/1721/%C2%A7-2-105-bill-exceptions-making-preserving-transcribing-and-delivery-record

Well for clarification, does refering to something in brief that is contained in the bill of exceptions count in the 50 pages?
No. Definitely not. You are required to refer to issues/items from the BofE in your brief so the judges can see what you base your claim of error upon. Such references have no bearing on the number of pages in the brief itself. I hope this Answer is helpful and that you will give it a positive rating.
