logoSurvey Survey


A case that seeks to determine an abstract question that does not rest upon existing facts or rights, or that seeks a judgment in a pretended controversy, or one that seeks a decision about a right before it has actually been asserted or contested, or a judgment upon some matter that, when rendered for any cause, cannot have any practical effect upon the existing controversy. See advisory opinion.
EXAMPLE: Tina files a lawsuit against Private University, claiming that the university has denied her admission because of her race. Before the case reaches the trial court Private admits Tina as a student. Because of the school’s actions, the case between Tina and Private is rendered moot. Tina can no longer claim that race was a factor in denying her admission, since she has been admitted.
