- consent judgment
- A judgment entered by consent of the parties for the purpose of executing a compromise and settlement of an action; in effect, an agreement or contract of the parties acknowledged in court, and ordered to be recorded, with the sanction of the court. 30A Am J Rev ed Judgm § 144. A consent judgment is a determination by the parties, rather than by the court, but it is equally immune to collateral attack as a judgment rendered after a determination by the court. 30A Am J Rev ed Judgm § 847.
