  • Conviction On Traffic Misdemeanor Proves Liability

  • Conviction On Traffic Misdemeanor Proves Liability

    NRS 41.133 Conviction of crime is conclusive evidence of facts necessary to impose civil liability for related injury. If an offender has been convicted of the crime which resulted in the injury to the victim, the judgment of conviction is conclusive evidence of all facts necessary to impose civil liability for the injury.

    Stroud v. Cook, 931 F. Supp. 733, 736 (D. Nev. 1996):

    Even absent federal decisional authority for the proposition that misdemeanor convictions are admissible under Rule 803's "public records" exception, the existence of a Nevada statute which not only authorizes admission of a prior criminal conviction in a subsequent related civil action, but indeed appears to compel the admission of such prior criminal conviction, counsels in favor of admission of [the Defendant's] conviction for failure to use due care in the operation of a motor vehicle on the occasion of the collision between her automobile and that of defendant Cook.
