Fair Preponderance Law and Legal Definition

Fair preponderance is the evidence sufficient to create a belief in the minds of jury or judge that a party who bears the burden of proof has established his/her case. Such evidence provide basis to the fact that one side of a controversy is more likely to be correct. This is the usual standard for all legal disputes. This is because the burden of proof is shard equally between both the contestants of a case. When the jury or judge believes that one of the party to the case have produced evidence substantial enough to support a conclusion this would be a fair preponderance of evidence.
