Against The (manifest) (weight Of The) Evidence Definition

An evidentiary standard allowing a trial judge to set aside a jury’s judgment or verdict and order a new trial when it clearly appears to the judge that the jury’s decision is unsupported by the credible evidence presented at trial; is based upon false evidence or some improper motive, bias, or feelings; or would result in a miscarriage of justice. However, this does not permit a judge to substitute the jury’s decision with his own merely because he disagrees with the decision.
