It sounds like it may POSSIBLY mean: No Contest, Count 1. Which would mean that the defendant pleaded "no contest" to the charge against them.A no contest plea is, in effect, a plea of guilty and signifies that the defendant acknowledges that the prosecution has enough evidence against them in order to convict, therefore the defendant will not 'contest' the charge.
"Judgment for Defendant" means that the defendant wins the case. In a criminal case, a judgment for defendant would be a "not guilty" verdict (usually). In a civil case, it would usually mean that the defendant does not have to pay money to the person who sued him or her (known as the "plaintiff").

Defendant Case History
An injunction forbids a defendant to take or continue an action.
That means the defendant has to pay them out of his own pocket.
It means that the judge has decided on the amount of bail that will be necessary in order ensure the release, and subsequent appearance of, the defendant.
Generally in the court case history or minute entry the term RO refers to the release order. The release order can vary from defendant to defendant with restrictions that are part of the order. They may vary from being released on their own recognizance, to a bond amount set, or even no bond (no release). It may also order the defendant to participate in a drug testing program or electronic monitoring. Virtually all release orders require the defendant to not commit any crimes while released, stay in the state, and not contact the victims (if any).
When a defendant is declared indigent, it means that the defendant doesn't have any assets with which to hire a lawyer or another form of legal representation and so the defendant is entitled to free legal representation.
