DIVISION 3. GENERAL PROVISIONS [300 - 413]

  ( Division 3 enacted by Stats. 1965, Ch. 299. )

CHAPTER 5. Weight of Evidence Generally [410 - 413]
  ( Chapter 5 enacted by Stats. 1965, Ch. 299. )

410.
  

As used in this chapter, “direct evidence” means evidence that directly proves a fact, without an inference or presumption, and which in itself, if true, conclusively establishes that fact.

(Enacted by Stats. 1965, Ch. 299.)

411.
  

Except where additional evidence is required by statute, the direct evidence of one witness who is entitled to full credit is sufficient for proof of any fact.

(Enacted by Stats. 1965, Ch. 299.)

412.
  

If weaker and less satisfactory evidence is offered when it was within the power of the party to produce stronger and more satisfactory evidence, the evidence offered should be viewed with distrust.

(Enacted by Stats. 1965, Ch. 299.)

413.
  

In determining what inferences to draw from the evidence or facts in the case against a party, the trier of fact may consider, among other things, the party’s failure to explain or to deny by his testimony such evidence or facts in the case against him, or his willful suppression of evidence relating thereto, if such be the case.

(Enacted by Stats. 1965, Ch. 299.)
