Slander Per Se

In Nevada, the elements for a claim slander per se are:

1.   An alleged defamatory oral statement;

2.   That the plaintiff committed a crime, has contracted a loathsome disease, that a woman is unchaste, or an allegation must be one which would tend to injure the plaintiff or his trade, business, profession, or office; and

3.         Proximate cause and damges.
