Understanding court judgments

A court judgment is a binding decision made by a judge of magistrate at the outcome of an application or hearing. It depends on the court and type of matter as to how detailed a court judgment will be: for some matters it will set out in great detail the judge’s reasons for the decision; for other matters it will simply state the application and outcome.

It is important when you receive a court judgment that you can carefully examine the document for any errors or oversights.
