A case will be tried without a jury if either no right to a jury trial exists or all parties have waived the right to a jury trial. If there is no jury then the trial judge serves as both the finder of fact and adjudicator. If an action is tried without a jury the judge must set forth the facts of the case with particularity and state, in a separate section of his/her opinion, the law which he/she believes applies to those facts.
