It indicates the judge has all the information and evidence which he or she needs, and has taken the matter "under submission". The court determined that there is no need to have another hearing. The judge will provide a written decision, usually within the next few days (but it could take up to 90 days).

the judge will send a ruling in the mail and set a further hearing if necessary in that order.


Judges often prefer to make rulings and send them via mail instead of in open court. This is very common in cases where individuals represent themselves, especially in Small Claims court cases.
The judge will make his decision based on the information provided by the parties and send out written notice. If he intends to set a new hearing, it will be in his decision.

i agree with this answer. This is especially true with pro per litigants in my experience.
