The burden of proof required in a civil (non-criminal) action to convince the court that a given proposition is true. The plaintiff must convince the judge or jury by a preponderance of the evidence that the plaintiff’s version is true — that is, over 50 percent of the believable evidence is in the plaintiff’s favor (definition from Nolo’s Plain-English Law Dictionary).
I had a traffic case before city of Chandler Traffic Court. No picture. No evidence. No proof. No witness. The court sided with the police officer’s testimony alone. This is not justice. This is a travesty of justice.
