What Is A Judgment?

A judgment is the final written determination of the outcome of a civil lawsuit. In Washington, a judgment of a trial court may be appealed within 30 days to the Court of Appeals.

A judgment involving an award of money becomes a lien on all property owned by the judgment debtor in the county where the suit took place and may be enforced by garnishment of wages or bank accounts, seizure of personal property, or foreclosure on real estate.
