Finding of Fact
Definition - What does Finding of Fact mean?
Finding of fact is the decision or the verdict that a jury or a judge reaches after all the facts of the case have been presented by each party.

Justipedia explains Finding of Fact
Finding of fact is basically the judgment on the facts of the case by the judge or the jury. During a trial, someone or some group needs to reach a conclusion about the facts of the case. Otherwise, the defendant cannot be determined to be guilty or innocent. In other words, a decision must be made, and this decision is known as the finding of fact. Sometimes it is made solely by a judge, and sometimes it is made by a jury, which is comprised of a number of people.
