Scope and Content

This series contains judgment abstracts filed with the Third District Court in and for Salt Lake County. An abstract of judgment is a court document that states how much the loser of a lawsuit owes. Justice of the peace courts, city courts, other district courts, the Industrial Commission, and the Tax Commission could all file an abstract of judgment with the clerk of the district court of any county to serve as a lien upon the judgment debtor and to allow for execution in that county. The records are bound in volumes beginning with an alphabetical plaintiff index and followed by information relating to specific cases. Individual entries contain names of the plaintiff and defendant, court where judgment occurred, and the amount of judgment and prevailing party. That information is then followed by a log of the filing dates for individual documents such as the abstract of judgment, warrants, or satisfactions.

Additional records were located in December 1998 and the series inventory was updated by David Clark. Territorial volumes were removed from this series in 2003 and assigned to the appropriate territorial creating court with processing completed in February of that year by A.C. Cone. A missing reel of film (vol. 3) was located in March 2003 and this inventory was subsequently updated.
