Hello,

 

Disposed means that some sort or resolution has been reached in a court case. Motion pending is likely a motion to dismiss based on the settlement being approved by the court. Judges usually sit down every two weeks or so and go through through their stack of motions that need signatures and sign them. They then send them on for filing and mailing out to the parties.

 

Thanks.

Matt

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
