Findings of Fact

In court ‘facts’ found based on inferences from question(s) answered by reference to established facts and evidence already in the case before the court. A question of fact is different than a question of law which considers legal principals pertinent to the facts of the case. So decide first what are the facts of the case as found by the court, and then apply the law to those facts.

Question of Fact: Did Billy Wind hit Mary Bishop on the side of the head?

Question of Law: Does hitting another person on the side of the head, without consent, ground a conviction for assault?
