Docket Entry Law & Legal Definition


A docket entry refers to an entry identifying the title of each pleading.

The following is an example of a case law on docket entry:

A docket entry is not a judgment or appealable order of the trial court. A docket entry is a memorandum made for the convenience of the trial court and the clerk; it cannot be substituted for a final decision of the court. [Barrow v. State, 2000 Tex. App. LEXIS 4289 (Tex. App. 2000)].
