Nevada Witnesses and Evidence

Sec. § 47.240
Conclusive presumptions.

The following presumptions, and no others, are conclusive:


A malicious and guilty intent, from the deliberate commission of an unlawful act, for the purpose of injuring another.


The truth of the fact recited, from the recital in a written instrument between the parties thereto, or their successors in interest by a subsequent title, but this rule does not apply to the recital of a consideration.


Whenever a party has, by his or her own declaration, act or omission, intentionally and deliberately led another to believe a particular thing true and to act upon such belief, the party cannot, in any litigation arising out of such declaration, act or omission, be permitted to falsify it.


A tenant is not permitted to deny the title of his or her landlord at the time of the commencement of the relation.


The judgment or order of a court, when declared by titles 2, 3 and 6 of NRS to be conclusive; but such judgment or order must be alleged in the pleadings if there is an opportunity to do so; if there is no such opportunity, the judgment or order may be used as evidence.


Any other presumption which, by statute, is expressly made conclusive.
