Sure, they are two different things.

The judiciary system is full of so many terminologies that are often misunderstood and misinterpreted by a lot of people.

Wikipedia explains a court judgment as the decision of a court regarding the rights and liabilities of parties involved in a legal proceeding.

A court judgment is the final outcome of a certain lawsuit in a certain competent court.
