Summary Judgment

Summary Judgment

Definition

A court judgment based on the judge's conclusion that the litigation involves only a question of law, with no associated questions of fact. Disputes as to the meaning of insurance policy provisions, when they involve only the interpretation of the policy itself and not the determination of the circumstances of the loss, are often the subject of a summary judgment.
