matters of fact
Explanation:
is the standard phrase in Anglo-American legal practice. It refers to one of the major subsections in a brief submitted in a lawsuit. This subsection describes, surprise, the events and actions that constitute the factual grounds of the party's case.

The parallel subsection, which usually follows the "Matters of Fact," is the "Matters of Law." This is where the party submitting the brief describes the legal precedents for his position, citing the case law, rulings, opinions, and learned commentaries by jurists, as applicable.

Hope this helps!
