Dears,
would you kindly explain the legal term 'discontinued on evidential grounds' (I have also seen 'evidentiary grounds')? Does it mean there is a lack of evidence?

    Here is the sentence: 'There was nothing worse than working a case for weeks, months, even years, to have prosecution discontinued on evidential grounds.' (Angela Marsons 'Lost Girls')
