Recovery of Judgment Law and Legal Definition

Recovery of judgment refers to the rendition of judgment in favor of a party, whether plaintiff or defendant.

The following is an example of a case law on recovery of judgment:

The words "recovery of a judgment", as used in section of uniform contribution among tortfeasors act, providing that recovery of a judgment by injured person against one joint tortfeasor does not discharge the other joint tortfeasors, are construed to mean actual recovery of a judgment, and not merely rendition of the judgment. [Hackett v. Hyson, 72 R.I. 132 (R.I. 1946)].
