This is a judgment which agrees with another judgment (i.e. the supposed majority/lead judgment of a particular court). This happens mainly in the Supreme Court, Court of Appeal and Election Petition Tribunals. This is because all these courts have more than a judge presiding over them while a judgment supported by a larger number of judges in any of these courts is regarded as the majority or lead judgment, other judges too have to write their individual judgments (otherwise known as concurring judgment) where they will clearly state their agreement with the majority judgment.
Contrast: dissenting judgment.
