A list under which judicial orders of a particular court are recorded by a clerk or other designated officer to be available for inspection by the public.
A judgment docket serves an important function by providing parties interested in learning of the existence of a judgment or a lien on property to enforce a judgment with access to such information. The recording of a judgment in a judgment docket is considered official notice to all parties of its existence. The rules of procedure of the particular court govern the maintenance of the judgment docket.
