Elsie Law's Daily Dose Of The Law

According to "Legal Research" (By: Elias & Levinkind), the difference between a trial and a summary judgment is: "Trials are held to determine the facts when they are [in] dispute...Summary judgment is premised on the fact that there are no factual disputes, and therefore no need for a trial. The judge can go ahead and apply the relevant law to the undisputed facts."
