Rule 297. Time to File Findings and Conclusions (1984)


When demand is made therefor, the court shall prepare its findings of fact and conclusions of law and file same within thirty days after the judgment is signed. Such findings of fact and conclusions of law shall be filed with the clerk and shall be part of the record. If the trial judge shall fail so to file them, the party so demanding, in order to complain of the failure, shall, in writing, within five days after such date, call the omission to the attention of the judge, whereupon the period for preparation and filing shall be automatically extended for five days after such notification.

Amended by order of Dec. 5, 1983, eff. April 1, 1984: Time for filing findings and conclusions is changed so that the judge shall prepare them within thirty days after judgment.
