Flagrantly Against the Evidence Law and Legal Definition

Flagrantly against the evidence means so much against the weight of the evidence as to shock the conscience and clearly indicate passion and prejudice of the jury.

A verdict of a properly instructed jury will not be set aside unless it is flagrantly against the evidence. In determining whether a verdict is flagrantly against the evidence, a reviewing court is not confined alone to the express testimony of witnesses, but may look to the surrounding circumstances and conditions. If they are such that the facts testified to by the witnesses cannot upon any reasonable hypothesis be true, the verdict should be set aside. [Sandy V. & E. R. Co. v. Hughes, 181 Ky. 558 (Ky. 1918)].
