NAC 645F.900 Hearings: Rules of evidence; informality of proceedings. (NRS 645F.255, 645F.390)
1. In conducting any hearing, the hearing officer is not bound by the technical rules of evidence, and any informality in any proceeding or in the manner of taking testimony does not invalidate any order or decision of the hearing officer. The rules of evidence of courts of this State will be followed generally but may be relaxed at the discretion of the hearing officer if deviation from the technical rules of evidence will aid in determining the facts.
2. Any evidence offered at a hearing must be material and relevant to the issues of the hearing.
3. Sworn declarations may be introduced in lieu of testimony if a witness resides outside the State of Nevada.
4. The hearing officer may exclude inadmissible, incompetent, repetitious or irrelevant evidence or order that the presentation of that evidence be discontinued.
5. A party who objects to the introduction of evidence shall briefly state the grounds of the objection at the time the evidence is offered. The party who offers the evidence may present a rebuttal argument to the objection.
