Preponderance of the Evidence

Preponderance of the Evidence:

In civil law, preponderance of the evidence, requires the plaintiff to convince the trier of fact — the judge or the jury — of his/her claim. The plaintiff must offer evidence that has a greater weight and is more convincing than the evidence against it. In a criminal case, the standard of proof is different and is “beyond a reasonable doubt.”
