County court judgments

In certain circumstances a county court will make an order that a stated sum of money is to be paid by one person to another. This may arise out of an action in tort or may be one of many judgements made in some small bankruptcies, which are not the subject of an order in bankruptcy but are delat with summarily by the county court. The person against whom the order is made is known as the judgement debtor and the person to whom the money must be paid is the judgement creditor.
