“What do you mean, 'moot'?” “I mean moot. It's taken care of. The documents are notarized. I'm recouping my lawyer's fees and that's the end of it.”
-- Jonathan Franzen, The Corrections
As for Maddy, my only point would be that a suitable age for dating becomes moot if nobody's asking.
-- Marion K. Douglas, Dance Hall Road
Moot is derived from the Old English gemot "meeting.” The adj. senses of "debatable" and "not worth considering" arose from moot case, earlier simply moot (n.) "discussion of a hypothetical law case" (1530s), in law student jargon, in reference to students gathering to test their skills in mock cases.
