Lombardo v. State

In Lombardo v. State, 172 Conn. 385 , 374 A.2d 1065 (1977), the Court held that "whether a new trial should be granted does not turn on whether the evidence is such that the jury could extend credibility to it. . . . The plaintiff must persuade the court that the new evidence he submits will probably, not merely possibly, result in a different verdict at a new trial, or that an injustice has been done. . . . It is not sufficient for him to bring in new evidence from which a jury could find him not guilty -- it must be evidence which persuades the judge that a jury would find him not guilty."
