Resumen

BRAVO-HURTADO, Pablo. BURDEN OF PROOF DEFEASIBILITY IN CONTRACTS LIABILITY: TOWARDS EVIDENCE EASINESS IN CHILE. RChDP [online]. 2013, n.21, pp.13-46. ISSN 0718-8072.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-80722013000200002.

This paper analyzes from the perspective of the legal reasoning theory the article 1698 of the Chilean Civil Code that contains the general rule on the distribution of the burden of proof. From Frederick Schauer's conceptual framework -that understands the prescriptive rules as generalization with background justifications- I propose to demonstrate that the 1698' distribution of burdens can be defeated. Here will be shown that there is case-law in which the 1698' generalizations have no use for its background justification and, accordingly, the judges defeat its application. The impeditive and modification facts, in one hand, and the evidence easiness, in the other, are the main hypothesis of defeasibility on the burden distribution made by the article 1698 of the Civil Code.

Palabras clave : Burden of proof; Defeasibility; Evidence facileness; Reform of civil procedure.
