Nevada Remedies; Special Actions and Proceedings

Sec. § 40.320
Proof required of plaintiff and defendant on trial.


On the trial of any proceeding for any forcible entry or forcible detainer, the plaintiff shall only be required to show, in addition to the forcible entry or forcible detainer complained of, that the plaintiff was peaceably in the actual possession at the time of the forcible entry, or was entitled to possession at the time of the forcible detainer.


The defendant may show in defense that the defendant or the defendant’s ancestors, or those whose interest in such premises the defendant claims, have been in the quiet possession thereof for the space of 1 whole year together next before the commencement of the proceedings, and that the defendant’s interest therein is not then ended or determined, and such showing is a bar to the proceedings.
