A declaratory judgment, also called a declaration or declaratory relief, is a court decision in a civil case that resolves legal uncertainty between two or more parties without awarding damages or ordering any action. A declaratory judgment determines the rights, duties, obligations of the parties involved as well as the legal relationship between them so as to resolve an actual legal matter or prevent future legal consequences.
Courts are reluctant to hear declaratory judgment cases since legal uncertainties may not result in a measurable loss. However, if you or your business is being threatened with a lawsuit or is looking to prevent further lawsuits from the same plaintiff, filing for a declaratory judgment and obtaining legal certainty may be beneficial.
