Evidence: Relevance

Evidence is relevant if it has any tendency to make a material fact more or less probable that would be the case without the evidence.

All relevant evidence is admissible unless the court determines that the probative value of the evidence is substantially outweighed by 6 pragmatic considerations:
  1. Unfair prejudice
  2. Confusion of the issues
  3. Misleading the jury
  4. Undue Delay
  5. Waste of time
  6. Unduly cumulative
