Nevada Witnesses and Evidence

Sec. § 49.375
Legality of obtaining evidence.


If information from an informer is relied upon to establish the legality of the means by which evidence was obtained and the judge is not satisfied that the information was received from an informer reasonably believed to be reliable, the judge may require the identity of the informer to be disclosed.


The judge may permit the disclosure to be made in camera or make any other order which justice requires. All counsel shall be permitted to be present at every stage at which any counsel is permitted to be present.


If disclosure of the identity of the informer is made in chambers, the record thereof shall be sealed and preserved to be made available to the appellate court in the event of an appeal.
