Law Lessons from D.S. VS. Y.P., App. Div., A-5930-10T1, April 12, 2013:
Rules 1:7-4(a) and 4:46-2(c) require a trial judge to accompany all opinions with findings of fact and conclusions of law. See Pressler & Verniero, Current N.J. Court Rules, comment 7 on R. 1:6-2 (2013) (stating the “three-fold purpose” for a trial court’s memorialized statement of reasons). Also, Rule 2:5-1(b) specifically mandates that a trial judge make findings and conclusions, particularly when there is an appeal filed.
