Joint And Several Liability Limits: The doctrine of joint and several liability is a fairness rule, developed over centuries to protect injured consumers. It applies when more than one defendant is found fully or substantially responsible for causing an injury. For example, if one wrongdoer is insolvent or cannot pay their share, the other fully-responsible wrongdoers must pay the bill, to make sure the innocent victim is fully compensated.

Judge: Government official with authority to decide lawsuits brought before courts. Other judicial officers in the U.S. courts system are Supreme Court justices.

Judgment: The official decision of a court finally determining the respective rights and claims of the parties to a suit.
