I like to call it "innocent until proven guilty", but apparently, this doesn't apply to civil cases.
No, it does not. You are correct. One example of Oranthal, who was found innocent of double murder in a criminal trial, but guilty in a civil trial. At a civil trial the burden is not on the prosecutor to prove guilt. The court tries to determine what the most likely thing to happen was, then applies what they feel are the appropriate damages.
