A judgment is a decision of a court of the first degree.

The court may be a common law court ( high court or district court ) or a specialized court ( commercial court , labor court , etc.)

Decisions of administrative tribunals are also judgments.

The decisions of the Courts of Appeal and the Court of Cassation are judgments.

The decisions of arbitral tribunals are awards.

The enforceable copy of a judgment is the ” fat ” of the judgment (so designated because it was “grossed out”, in large print because its delivery was chargeable) while the decision at the Tribunal is kept in the ” minutes ” (in menus character)
