Definition of Judgment

Summary judgments are a legal process in a civil trial where the judge may issue a decision without civil litigation. The goal of a judgment is to make a ruling and avoid a trial when the material facts of the case are not in dispute. Prior to making a summary judgment, information such as affidavits, interrogatories, depositions, and admissions may be considered by the judge on a motion for summary judgment.
