RULES OF EVIDENCE

ARTICLE III. PRESUMPTIONS

Rule 301. Presumptions


    In all actions and proceedings, unless otherwise provided for by constitution, statute, case law, or these rules, a presumption imposes on the party against whom it is directed the burden of going forward with evidence to rebut or meet the presumption, but does not shift to such party the burden of proof in the sense of the risk of nonpersuasion, which remains throughout the trial upon the party on whom it was originally cast.
