Question Of Law

Questions of law are determined only by the judge. They are distinguished from questions of fact which are usually, but not always, determined by the jury as fact finders. Questions of law are legal issues that must be determined in order to proceed with the prosecution of the defendant. Questions of law include interpretation of statutes and case law as well as legal rulings on issues of evidence.
