I have some thoughts on this and will type them up, a few moments please...
What you are describing sounds like a judgment issued by a court.The judgment is "twofold"...there is an "in rem" judgement and an "in personam judgment"
In rem is a judgment against property. I judgment entered by a court with in rem jurisdiction does not bind the defendant personally but determines the title to or status of the only property in question.So, for example, if there was a dispute over ownership of a bank account, the court could give a judgment that allows one party to access the funds in the account.
In personam judgment is, essentially, the opposite. This is a judgment against a particular person.So this is a judgment that can be enforced against BOTH particular property AND against an individual.
