The Elements for a Claim of Concert of Action

In Nevada, the elements for a claim of concert of action are:

  1. Two or more persons act together while committing a tort pursuant to a common design or plan; and
  2. Liability attaches for the tort of concert of action when two people commit a tort while “acting in concert with one another or pursuant to a common design.” (Proof of an agreement alone is insufficient, as the conduct of each tortfeasor must be individually tortuous);
  3. Causation and damages.
