Title 9, Chapter 11, Section 58
(a) Signing. Except when otherwise specifically provided by statute,
all judgments shall be signed by the judge and filed with the clerk.
The signature of the judge shall be followed by the spelling of the
judge's name and title legibly typed, printed, or stamped. The
failure of the judgment to have the typed, printed, or stamped name
of the judge shall not invalidate the judgment.
(b) When judgment entered. The filing with the clerk of a judgment, signed by the judge, constitutes the entry of the judgment, and, unless the court otherwise directs, no judgment shall be effective for any purpose until the entry of the same, as provided in this subsection. At the time of the filing of the final judgment, a civil case disposition form shall be filed by the prevailing party or by the plaintiff if the case is settled, dismissed, or otherwise disposed of without a prevailing party. The form shall be substantially in the form prescribed in Code Section 9-11-133. If any of the information required by the form is sealed by the court, the form shall state that fact and the information under seal shall not be provided. The entry of the judgment shall not be delayed for the taxing of costs or the filing of the case disposition form.
