Admissible

ADMISSIBLE

A term used to describe information that is relevant to a determination of issues in any judicial proceeding so that such information can be properly considered by a judge or jury in making a decision.

Evidence is admissible if it is of such a character that the court is bound to accept it during the trial so that it may be evaluated by the judge or jury. Admissible evidence is the foundation of the deliberation process by which a court or jury decides upon a judgment or verdict.

The federal rules of evidence regulate the admissibility of evidence in federal courts. State rules of evidence determine evidence that is admissible in state court proceedings.
