  Summary judgment - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A party moving (applying) for summary judgment is attempting to eliminate its risk of losing at trial, and possibly avoid having to go through the directions by demonstrating to the judge, by sworn statements and documentary evidence, that there are no material issues of fact remaining to be tried.
A party moving for summary judgment may refer to any evidence that would be admissible if there were to be a trial, such as, depositions, party admissions, documents received during discovery (such as contracts, emails, letters, and certified government documents).
A grant of summary judgment is reviewed "de novo" (meaning, without deference to the views of the trial judge) both as to the determination that there is no remaining genuine issue of material fact and that the prevailing party was entitled to judgment as a matter of law.

 Judgment - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A judgment or judgement (see spelling note below), in a legal context, is synonymous with the formal decision made by a court following a lawsuit.
Many forms of judgment, including the above example, require that they be supported by, and support, known facts which are themselves well supported, and its negation must be shown to be unfounded, before it is accepted as well founded.
In the US at least, judgment is still preferred and judgement is considered incorrect; as with many such spelling differences, both forms are acceptable in Canadian English and Australian English.

 Aesthetic Judgment
Judgments of taste are like empirical judgments in that they have universal validity; but, they are unlike empirical judgment in that they are made on the basis of an inner response.
Conversely, judgments of taste are like judgments of niceness or nastiness in that they are made on the basis of an inner subjective response or experience; but they are unlike judgments of niceness and nastiness which makess no claim to universal validity.
However, in addition to judgments of beauty and ugliness, the contemporary notion of an aesthetic judgment is typically used to characterize a class of judgments that also includes judgments of daintiness, dumpiness, delicacy and elegance.

 CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA: General Judgment (Last Judgment)
That this judgment is ascribed to Christ, not only as God, but also as Man, is expressly declared in Scripture; for although the power of judging is common to all the Persons of the Trinity, yet it is specially attributed to the Son, because to Him also in a special manner is ascribed wisdom.
The former appear in the judgment, not to be judged, but only to hold the glory of Christ (Supplement 80:5), while the latter, ranked with the wicked, although not judged, will be enabled to realize the justice of their eternal loss (Suarez).
The procedure of the judgment is described in Matthew 25:31-46, and in the Apocalypse 20:12.

 CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA: Particular Judgment
Ecclesiastes 11:9; 12:1 sq.; and Hebrews 9:27, are sometimes quoted in proof of the particular judgment, but though these passages speak of a judgment after death, neither the context nor the force of the words proves that the sacred writer had in mind a judgment distinct from that at the end of the world.
The prompt fulfilment of the sentence is part of the dogma of particular judgment, but until the question was settled by the decision of Benedict XII, in 1332, there was much uncertainty regarding the fate of the departed in the period between death and the general resurrection.

From this we may fairly infer that the judgment day may be a long period of time of perhaps a thousand years, or even longer, as the thousand years seems to be mentioned indefinitely to denote the greater vastness of God's days in comparison to man's.
The judgment of man began with Christ, the first finished man, as he himself said, "Now is the judgment (Krisis) of this world (Kosmos) now shall the prince of this world be cast out, and I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me." (John 12:31,32).
The judgment day is not a period of dread and almost universal doom, as many represent it, but a time of gladness and joy for all mankind.

 High Court’s judgment on Best Bakery case has heightened the tragedy of trial court into a farce Human Rights ...
The comments of the Gujarat High Court Judgment on the Best Bakery case have negated the process of justice by ridiculing those seeking justice perhaps unprecedented in the history of Independent India.
The Court had further nothing to say about the questionable judgment of the lower court, which apart from being a travesty of justice had contained gratuitous remarks on issues of no relevance.
Again, instead of condemning the last eight pages of the uncalled for comments from the trial court’s judgment at Vadodara, this judgment has added further such absurd comments in what can be only termed as a distortion and perversion of the judicial process.
