If you approach science as if it were law, noone is going to
take you seriously. No reputable scientist would use the same
approach as any lawyer.
In science, the evidence that doesn't fit the theory helps
show the need for extending the theory or coming up with a new
theory. If you just ignore the evidence that is contrary to
your theory, you're no scientist.
