sufficient evidence

Abstractly, evidence of such probative value as to support the verdict of the jury or a finding of fact by the court. Practically, evidence such as will satisfy an unprejudiced mind of the truth of that which the court or jury has found to be the fact. Re Cruson, 189 Or 537, 221 P2d 892, 20 ALR2d 219. Where a statute provides that the schedule of rates fixed by the commissioners shall be "sufficient" evidence that the rates thus fixed were just and reasonable, the word "sufficient" does not mean "conclusive." Pensacola & Atlantic Railroad Co. v State, 25 Fla 310, 5 So 833.
