agreed case

A special proceeding, the chief characteristic of which is that the parties submit to the court an agreed statement of the ultimate facts essential to a determination of the particular litiga tion, so that the court will not be concerned with matters of fact, but will consider and determine openly matters of law. 3 Am J2d Agr C § 1. The term is not an exclusive designation of the proceeding but is used interchangeably with other terms such as "case stated" and "case agreed." 3 Am J2d Agr C § 1. There is a distinction, however, between an agreed case and an agreed statement of acts.
