ajewdicate; a-jew-di-cate: Is when you've been through the court system and have been screwed
. Royally fucked
NOT to be confused with: adjudicated; ad·ju·di·cated. That's when you've went into hock for a good lawyer (and that in itself is a misnomer) and gotten out with almost all that you went into court with. In other words - 'ya broke even (nearly) and you aren't underwater anymore.
Overheard at lunch: ''Yeah, my brother Flem had to go to court yesterday.. man, that dude sure got taken for a ride by his ex!! He truly was AJEWDICATED, not adjudicated. Shit, he owes me $ 3 grand alone! Plus - he lost his ride - had to sell it for a loss. And - he lost his lease too, now he's livin' in my basement until he can save up for his own apartment, poor fuck."
- The chick he was with couldn't stop laughin'.. and she told the guy
" Ah - well, I went to court about 6 months ago, and I was adjudicated too. But I got $15,000 bucks from MY ex, lol". That's how I got my new car.
