Conflicting Evidence Law and Legal Definition

Conflicting evidence is evidence from different sources which cannot be reconciled. For instance, evidence for the plaintiff and evidence for the defendant, considered together and which presents a fair and reasonable ground for difference of view as to which should prevail.

The evidence, in order to raise a conflict, must be such as to present a fair and reasonable ground for a difference of opinion. [Lefrooth v. Prentice, 202 Cal. 215, 231 (Cal. 1927)].
