Specific Finding
A decision on a fact made by a jury in its verdict at the judge's request. Often the judge gives a jury a list of decisions to be made on specific findings of fact to help the jurors focus on the issues. For example, a judge may ask the jury to answer the specific question, "Was the defendant exceeding the speed limit?"
