Rule 52. Findings by the Court

Advisory Commission Comments to Rules 52.01-52.02

Advisory Commission Comments

This Rule conforms generally to Tenn. Code Ann. § 27-1-113.

Advisory Commission Comment [2002]

Although Rule 56 motions for summary judgment are excluded from Rule 52.01, amended Rule 56 requires on request a statement of “the legal grounds” for granting judgment summarily.

Advisory Commission Comment [2009]

The heading and first sentence of Rule 52.01 are amended. No longer must counsel request the judge to make findings of fact and conclusions of law in nonjury trials.
