Direct Evidence Law and Legal Definition

Direct evidence is defined as "evidence, which, if believed, proves the existence of a fact in issue without inference or presumption. Evidence that only suggests discrimination [or retaliation], or that is subject to more than one interpretation, does not constitute direct evidence." Dickey v. Dollar Gen. Corp., 2009 U.S. App. LEXIS 24335 (11th Cir. Oct. 30, 2009)
