A docket entry consists of the following information: names of judgment debtor and creditor, case number, a summary of the judgment rendered in the civil case, date judgment was entered, book and page number where the judgment has been entered in the corresponding judgment record book, any appeal made, judgment of appellate court if applicable, and any satisfactions (payment) of judgment.
