Judgment creditor

A judgment creditor is a winning plaintiff that has gained the affirmation of a court that the defendant owes it money and must pay the designated amount. The judgment creditor can then ask for the assistance of the court in collecting the debt, including the issuance of a writ of execution. If the defendant then files for bankruptcy, the claim of the judgment creditor is prioritized ahead of the claims of unsecured creditors.
