• Judgment and Decree


    On the basis of Art 273, we are coming closer to the culmination of the life of a civil suit. That is, once we address issues with regard to the pre-trial stage and trial stage; now we will embark on the final section which deals with judgment and decree.

    According to Art 180 of the Civil Procedure Code, the court shall pronounce judgment in open court either at once or, as soon after as may be practicable, on some future day to be fixed by the court. Once the court renders judgment, the judgment shall be reduced to writing, signed by the member or members of the court, and be pronounced by the judger or, where there is more than one judge, by the presiding judge.
