Question of Fact

Author: Webmaster / August 12, 2016 / Categories:

In a lawsuit or criminal prosecution, this is an issue of fact in which the truth or falsity (or a mix of the two) must be determined by the “trier of fact” (the jury or the judge in a non-jury trial) in order to reach a decision in the case.

A “question of fact” may also be raised in a motion for summary judgment which asks the court to determine whether there are any questions of fact to be tried, allowing the judge to rule on the case (usually to dismiss the complaint) at that point without a trial.

“Questions of fact” are distinguished from “questions of law,” which can only be decided by the judge.
