Admissible-evidence meaning

Evidence permitted by the law to be considered by a judge or jury in deciding the merits of an action. Only admissible evidence may be considered, but the judge has the discretion to exclude admissible evidence from his or the jury’s consideration. For example, cumulative evidence, or evidence whose probative value is outweighed by the risk of confusing the issues to be decided, may be excluded.
