Or standard of proof

(141) In seinem Antwortschreiben auf die Mitteilung der Beschwerdepunkte(53) gab Newscorp an, die Kommission habe es verabsäumt festzustellen, dass die Wahrscheinlichkeit größer ist, dass Newscorp kein solches Gebaren an den Tag legen werde. Newscorp weist darauf hin, dass in der Rechtssache Tetra Laval BV/Kommission(54) das Gericht erster Instanz festgestellt habe, dass das Beweismaß üblicherweise die Abwägung der Wahrscheinlichkeiten sei, und die Vorgehensweise der Kommission zurückgewiesen habe (speziell die Auffassung, die Möglichkeit einer wettbewerbswidrigen Auswirkung reiche aus, um ein Verbot zu rechtfertigen).

(141) In the reply to the statement of objections(53), Newscorp indicated that the Commission had fallen short of its obligation to establish that it is more likely than not that Newscorp will adopt such conduct. Newscorp points out that in Tetra Laval BV v. Commission(54) the Court of First Instance held that the standard of proof was the balance of probabilities and rejected the Commission's approach (namely that a possibility of harm to competition was sufficient to justify a prohibition decision).

agree  DDM: standard of proof, see also http://www.lectlaw.com/def2/s217.htm

  -> Yes, good definition, Daniel.

agree  Dr. Fred Thomson: As a lawyer, I agree with "standard of proof." "Sufficiency of proof" might be tempting, but this term is narrowly defined and is not a correct translation of the German term. "Degree of proof" is extremely close and might very well be used, but IMO

agree  Julia Lipeles

agree  Axel Seyler (X): Kim, without exhaustive research of German and US law, I think that this is probably close enough. "Evidentiary standards" would probably sound a little more professional. Another choice would, in my view, be "sufficiency of the evidence". a common term
