See Nevada Revised Statutes 104.4104
  • Draft: means a draft as defined in NRS 104. See Nevada Revised Statutes 104.4104
  • Item: means an instrument or a promise or order to pay money handled by a bank for collection or payment. See Nevada Revised Statutes 104.4104
  • person: means a natural person, any form of business or social organization and any other nongovernmental legal entity including, but not limited to, a corporation, partnership, association, trust or unincorporated organization. See Nevada Revised Statutes 104.4111

(a) Presenting an item or sending it for presentment;

(b) Sending notice of dishonor or nonpayment or returning an item other than a documentary draft to the bank’s transferor after learning that the item has not been paid or accepted, as the case may be;

(c) Settling for an item when the bank receives final settlement; and

(d) Notifying its transferor of any loss or delay in transit within a reasonable time after discovery thereof.

2.  A collecting bank exercises ordinary care under subsection 1 by taking proper action before its midnight deadline following receipt of an item, notice or settlement. Taking proper action within a reasonably longer time may constitute the exercise of ordinary care, but the bank has the burden of establishing timeliness.

3.  Subject to paragraph (a) of subsection 1, a bank is not liable for the insolvency, neglect, misconduct, mistake or default of another bank or person or for loss or destruction of or inability to obtain repossession of an item in the possession of others or in transit.
