This is a real estate matter. My broker, who is the defendant in the case, and who had admitted to being my broker under oath in a deposition and who had authored several listing agreements identifying him as my broker was rejected by the judge. The judge acknowledged the broker's under oath admission, but said she didn't believe him when he admitted that he was my broker, and then completely ignored every written document supporting this broker relationship, even though the broker acknowledged every written document (listing agreement) as being authored by him.
The court acknowledged all the wrong doings by the broker, but said since he was not my broker no duties were owed and then dismissed the case on summary.
Well then why you would want to see the judges opinion find out what in the judges if you happened. The correct errors the appeal process is available to you
It's impossible to properly advise you in this forum. An attorney would need to review the transcript, the order, etc. in order to properly advise you.

Within certain parameters, and the rules of evidence, the Court has great discretion as to issues of evidence. If you don't like the ruling, and if there was a court reporter present at the hearing, you may want to hire an appellate lawyer to review the case and see if you have grounds for an appeal. Move quickly, as your clock is ticking.

Did you have an attorney? It sounds more like you failed to lay the proper foundation for evidence. But I have seen and heard judges screw up. I had one that could not do simple math, really. I've had them be sarcastic in front of a jury, be rude, not listen and ask a totally unrelated question, or simply ignore the law or get the law wrong. It happens, ask the truck driver that moved his truck so he won't freeze to death about a candidate for the US Supreme Court's dissent in that case.....scary. Good luck.
Advice given in this forum does not create an attorney - client relationship. No advice should be relied on without consulting with a local attorney.
It is almost impossible for an attorney to answer your question based on the limited information given. Even the procedure to challenge the outcome is in doubt. However, if the case was truly dismissed, then likely you would have the ability to appeal the decision. You should retain an attorney with appellate experience. Also, you need to keep an eye on the calendar as the appeal must officially start no later than 30 days after the entry of the final judgment. Good luck.
and ANOTHER University of Google Law School fellow to attest to the quality of THAT education. That stated - asking tautological questions - those that are self proving - is equally a waste of time. OBVIOUSLY the judge didn't find your "evidence" conclusive, ruled against you and you lost. THIS is the peril of watching TV lawyer shows and thinking that, Google and You-Tube makes you a trial lawyer. Always odd how the same people that self lawyer litigation cases from the internet never try to do abdominal surgery on thier children with You-Tube and WebMD to save a buck. Hopefully the broker didn't have a lawyer as you may well now be facing a counter-judgment for legal fees and expenses. If there is ANY expectation to pursue this issue further or there are potential legal fee or sanctions consequences you need to retain a lawyer now ASAP for damage control if nothing else.
