Adjudicated

Adjudicated is a term that refers to a legal decision or judgment that has been made by a court or other judicial body.

When a case is adjudicated, it means that the court has heard the evidence and arguments presented by the parties and has issued a ruling on the matter. Adjudication is the process by which a case is decided, and the parties are given a legal remedy or relief. For example, in a civil case, a court may adjudge that one party must pay damages to the other party or issue an injunction ordering one party to stop a certain activity. In a criminal case, a court may adjudge that the defendant is guilty or not guilty of the charges brought against them and may impose a sentence if the defendant is found guilty. Adjudication is a key part of the legal process and is intended to resolve disputes fairly.
