Summary judgment is a judgment rendered as a matter of law, when the parties are not in dispute regarding the facts of a case.

If you bring a motion for summary judgment, you are asking the court to make a final ruling on the case before a trial has been conducted. This could be of great benefit, depending on the case, since you save time, money, and energy from having to further litigate your case.

See, motion.
