After the trial hearing, the judge will decide if the defendant owes the plaintiff anything.  (And, if the defendant counter-sued the plaintiff, if the plaintiff owes the defendant anything.)  The judge will decide the amounts.

If a request was part of the claim (or counter-claim) for one side to do something or to stop doing something, the judge will make decision about the request and will specific a time and date by when the losing side has to comply or pay a specific amount of money to the winning side.

The court has 90 days after the trial date to mail the Notice of Entry of Judgment (Form SC-130) to each side.

NOTE: After the trial hearing is over, it still is not the end of the case.
