Judgment Roll Law and Legal Definition
Judgment roll refers to collection of papers filed by the clerk of the court where the action or proceeding is in a court of record. It is filed when the clerk enters judgment. It includes every part of the action or proceeding, or such parts as the statute may specify. It normally contains the summons, pleadings, admissions, and each judgment and order involving the merits of the case or affecting the final judgment.
A judgment roll at common law consists of the petition, the answer, the reply, the findings by the court, its instructions to the jury, the verdict of the jury, and the judgment entered upon the verdict. [Peerson v. Mitchell, 205 Okla. 530, 533 (Okla. 1950)].
