|CITATION||Nev. Rev. Stat. Ann. §200.620|
Consent of all parties is required to tape a conversation in Nevada. Intercepting or delaying a telephone conversation is a misdemeanor. Nev. Rev. Stat. Ann. § 707.900.
In December 1998, the state’s highest court stated in a 3-2 decision that the state wiretapping statutes require an individual to obtain the consent of all parties before taping a telephone conversation, and thus, that an individual who tapes his own telephone calls without the consent of all participants unlawfully “intercepts” those calls. Lane v. Allstate Ins. Co., 969 P.2d 938, 941 (Nev. 1998).
In addition, it is a crime to intrude upon the privacy of another by surreptitiously listening to, recording, or disclosing any conversation gained by means of electronic or mechanical device, unless authorized to do so by one of the parties of the conversation. Nev. Rev. Stat. Ann § 200.630, .650.
|CONSENT REQUIRED||All parties to communication.|
|PENALTIES||Violations of the statute can be punishable by one thousand dollars ($100) up to one thousand dollars ($100) per day, whichever is greater, punitive damages for violations of privacy, and costs reasonably incurred in bringing the action to court. Nev. Rev. Stat. Ann § 200.690.|
