    Insufficient as a matter of law is the phrase used when the evidence offered by a plaintiff or prosecutor to his case has failed to provide even the minimum degree of evidence necessary to submit the case to the jury if it is a jury trial or to the Judge if it is a non-jury matter. It means that the legal principle asserted is not sufficient to warrant the case going forward. It will result in the dismissal of the action.
