court order

1) Every direction or mandate of a judge or a court which is not a judgment or legal opinion (although both may include an order) directing that something be done or that there is prohibition against some act. This can range from an order that a case will be tried on a certain date, to an order that a convicted defendant be executed at the state prison. 2) When a judge directs that a party before the court perform a particular act or refrain from certain acts or directs a public official or court employee (like a sheriff) to take certain actions, such as seizing property or arresting an AWOL defendant.
