1. To constitute such a presumption, a previous experience of the connection between the known and inferred facts is essential, of such a nature that as soon as the existence of the one is established, admitted or assumed, an inference as to the existence of the other arises, independently of any reasoning upon the subject. It follows that an inference may be certain or not certain, but merely, probable, and therefore capable of being rebutted by contrary proof.In general a presumption is more or less strong according as the fact presumed is a necessary, usual or infrequent consequence of the fact or facts seen, known, or proven. When the fact inferred is the necessary consequence of the fact or facts known, the presumption amounts to a proof when it is the usual, but not invariable consequence, the presumption is weak; but when it is sometimes, although rarely, the consequence of the fact or facts known, the presumption is of no weight. Presumptions are either legal and artificial, or...

Section 4 introduces the statutory system in the USA for adjudicating compensation claims that are based on injuries allegedly caused by covered vaccines, under which at least one method of proving causation clearly involves invoking a presumption. In contrast, a second method of proving causation in such cases presents difficulties for the concept of presumption. Section 5 presents a formal representation for the use of rule-based presumptions in legal decisions, and Section 6 explores and resolves the difficulties with the second method of proving causation in vaccine cases, and argues that it also involves a legal presumpt...

1. The term ‘presumption’ usually triggers different responses. For some people, a presumption is a shortcut leading to an irrebuttable conclusion with an unacceptably high probability of error. For other people, a presumption is always subject to evidence to the contrary. For yet other people, the use of presumptions is merely a burden-shifting exercise—a sort of ping-pong, not a knockout. This variety of views is probably due to the fact that EU competition lawyers come from several national legal backgrounds, and therefore do not share a single understanding of the term ‘presumption’, which can be quite a technical legal term in some contexts. To some extent, the discussion of presumptions depends on people’s presumptions towards presumptions—a meta-presumption! The purpose of this article is not to put forward a single understanding of the term ‘presumption’, as a technical legal term, in EU competition law.
