A trier of fact (or finder of fact) is

[t]he person or persons who decide the facts in legal cases. In a jury trial the jury is the trier of fact. When there is no jury (sometimes called a "bench trial" or "trial to the court"), the judge is the trier of fact. With or without a jury, it is the judge who determines the law in a case.[1]
