I'm Lucy, and I'd be happy to answer your questions today.
In 1998, the Nevada Supreme Court interpreted the state's wire-tapping statutes to mean that a person cannot record a telephone conversation without the consent of ALL parties to the conversation. Ten years later, the Supreme Court extended that ruling to also apply to oral conversations. The ruling literally makes no sense, and is made only more confusing because the original statutes are still on the books - and the statute clearly says that only one party need to consent to record a conversation for it to be legal. So, while I usually encourage people to look at the statutes and relevant cases where they can, that's not going to help here. The court's decision makes no sense whatsoever. But there it is. It's not legal to record a conversation in Nevada unless everyone consents.
