ripe for judgment

ripe for judgment
An action that is so far advanced, by verdict, default, confession, the determination of all pending motions, or other disposition of preliminary or disputed matters, that nothing remains for the court but to render the appropriate judgment. A case is ripe for decision by an appellate court if the legal issues involved are clear enough and well enough evolved and presented so that a clear decision can come out of the case. California Water & Tel. Co. v. Los Angeles County, 253 C.A.2d 16, 61 Cal.Rptr. 618, 623.
