Nev. Admin. Code § 467.936 - Procedure for hearing; rules of evidence

Current through March 28, 2022

Hearings before the Commission are civil proceedings. At a hearing before the Commission:

1. Oral evidence may be taken only upon oath or affirmation administered by the Commission.
2. Each party has the right to:
(a) Call and examine witnesses;
(b) Introduce exhibits relevant to the issues of the case, including the transcript of testimony at an investigative hearing conducted by or on behalf of the Commission;
(c) Cross-examine opposing witnesses on matters relevant to the issues of the case, even though the matter was not covered in a direct examination;
(d) Impeach a witness regardless of which party first called him or her to testify; and
(e) Offer rebuttal evidence.
3. If the respondent does not testify on his or her own behalf, a party may call the respondent and examine him or her as if under cross-examination.
4. The Commission need not follow the rules of evidence that a court must follow. All evidence that the Commission determines to be relevant and submitted in accordance with the requirements of this chapter is admissible. If the Commission determines that the evidence is the sort of evidence on which responsible persons are accustomed to rely in the conduct of serious affairs, the Commission may use that evidence alone to support a finding of fact.
