Nevada Jury Instructions

BURDEN OF PROOF; PREPONDERANCE OF THE EVIDENCE

Whenever in these instructions I state that the burden, or the burden of proof, rests upon a certain party to prove a certain allegation made by him, the meaning of such an instruction is this: That unless the truth of the allegation is proved by a preponderance of the evidence, you shall find the same not to be true.

The term “preponderance of the evidence” means such evidence as, when weighed with that opposed to it, has more convincing force, and from which is appears that the greater probability of truth lies therein.
