Best Answer

A judgment is a court order giving a creditor or someone who is owed money (such as money that was borrowed from a friend) the legal right to collect the debt in accordance with the laws of the state. The term "outstanding" indicates the judgment has not been paid or settled, but is still valid. A judgment that has been awarded to the judgment plaintiff but has not been paid by the judgment debtor.
