In Hartman v. ABS Hospitality Inc. (Div Ct, 2022) the Divisional Court made the useful Small Claims Court practice point that formal orders are not taken out, rather parties relies on the written endorsement:
 In Small Claims Court, the judge’s order is written by hand on a form entitled “Endorsement Record/Order of the Court – fiche d’inscription/ordonnance judiciaire.” The distinction between and endorsement and an order is not as sharp as it is in Superior Court, where a formal order is issued and entered based on the judge’s endorsement. As in Superior Court, the appeal is from the order, not the reasons. I do not take from the endorsement that the judge made an order for which she was not asked.
