A judgment may be rendered in writing or orally, depending on the circumstances.  Reversible Error – An error in a trial or hearing so damaging that the quashing of the judgment of a preliminary proceeding is justified. A judgment decision is a court order to settle a debt that requires a debtor to pay a certain amount to his creditor on an agreed schedule. In most cases, a judgment is sought by a debtor as the last attempt to pay a debt to a creditor who has taken legal action against the repayment of the funds earned as well as all related costs and interest. Escrow – Money or a written deed, such as an act by mutual agreement between two parties by a neutral third party (held in trust) until all the terms of the agreement are met. Third party – A person, company, organization or government agency that is not actively involved in legal proceedings, agreements or transactions, but is involved. Statutory Construction – a procedure by which a court attempts to interpret the meaning and scope of the legislation. However, a court may impose a default judgment if the defendant can provide evidence of a number of key issues.  In Queensland, QDC 314 Shanahan DCJ in Unique Product Marketing Pty Ltd v. Bortek Sales Pty Ltd  established a number of principles for quashing a default judgment regularly brought to the case.
These include: a judgment of the Court of Appeal must contain the factual findings of the impugned judgment, including any amendments or amendments, as well as the reasons for the Tribunal`s decision.  Reciprocity – A meeting of the contracting parties on the essential terms of the agreement. In HKSAR v. Yip Kim Po, after more than a year of trial, the judge (his honorary judge Kevin Browne) gave 1,753 paragraphs on 465 pages of the reasons for judgment. The Court of Appeal found that “the length of the reasons for the judge`s judgment posed considerable difficulties for the appelal courts and any other newcomer in the case to decipher the relevant evidence and to determine the actual issues before the courts. Too long a set of reasons also creates problems for the judge himself to focus on the essential issues before the courts to clearly, concisely and relevantly explain why he came to his decision.Â The Court of Final Appeal upheld the Court of Appeal`s statement and stated: “A judge should keep records of evidence and explanations, but it is not for a judgment to be that record.” Instead, the main purpose of a judgment is to identify the final issues in the case; quality, by reference to evidence accepted or rejected to present the main facts found by the judge; refer to the relevant “non”` question; to show how all the conclusions were drawn; Make the necessary factual findings Identifying and applying appropriate legal principles; and ultimately, to make the appropriate arrangements.Â  Judgment is considered a “free variation” and the use of judgment or judgment (with an e) is considered acceptable.  This derogation occurs depending on the country and the use of the word in a legal or non-legal context.
