Some people may assume that judgment and order are the same, but actually, they are not. Judgment refers to the outcome that may occur. A lot of the official judgments may happen in court, but there are a lot of people who pass judgment every day.

Order is a command that may come from the judge, especially when the audience or the people who are connected to the case are being rowdy or are misbehaving. An order will not end a court case, but it can help restore the court to its previous state. When the judge already passes judgment, this means that the situation is over. The parties can only choose to file appeals if needed.

Judgments end court cases, whereas an order does not. The content of a court judgment generally follows a standard format. The format involves the conditions to be carried out, while a court order can have a straightforward small content as short as a mere date, depending on the type of case. Judgments are virtually always put into writing while the judge can verbally decree orders in some cases.

Judgments and orders are terms that are diverse in meaning. In court, a judgment is a determination with finality, in which a court has delivered to end, close, or clear a lawsuit or judicial proceeding, and it is the final judgment of an ordinary court case. Judgments create resolutions for controversies. Court judge proclaims order.

These two words are related to law and the courts. Judgments bring a case to a close because it is a final decision. The decision is deciding which party is at fault and the consequences that may come from the fault. This can be something as small as having to pay a fine or something as serious as having to do a prison sentence.

An order dictates how each party should proceed during a case. Usually, these orders are temporary. Examples of court orders include temporary restraining orders or a side having to provide the necessary paperwork to prove their case.
