Transitioning issue when all linked issues are "done" Edited

I am trying to run a conditional post-function that transitions an issue from status a to b only when all of the linked issues are set to a "Done" status category. The groovy script I have written so far is below. 

This does return all of the linked issues, but it will transition even if the linked issues are not in a "done" status. Any ideas on how I can get this to work?

status = []

issue.getLinkedIssues('is blocked by').each{

  status += it.getStatus().getName()


if (status.every{"Done"}){

  return true

Hi Steve,

a much simpler code would be:

! issue.getLinkedIssues("is blocked by").find {
it.getStatusObject().getName() != "Done"

which means "cannot find a linked issue that is not in the Done status" 

Thanks @David Fischer [Innovalog]! Would this loop though all of the linked issues though? 

What my coworker and I eventually came up with is:

//create a container to hold all status names
statuses = []

//fetch all linked issues to the current issue being processed.
links = issue.getOutwardIssueLinks()

// Loop though all the linked issues and when a Asset Task is found, get the linked issues off the asset task and extract all of the statuses from said linked issues.
links.each{if (it.getDestinationObject().getIssueTypeObject().getName() == "Asset Task" ){
it.getDestinationObject().getLinkedIssues('is blocked by').each{
statuses += it.getStatus().getStatusCategory().getName()}

//if all the statuses from the linked issues to the asset task are done, then this function is true
statuses.every{it == "Complete"}

This is set up on the transition from In Progress to Done on the blocking task, which transitions the "blocked" task from status a to status b.

This is working well for us, though there may still be a more efficient way to accomplish this.
