In Dragon Age: Inquisition, "Sit in Judgment" is a quest that repeats throughout the game whenever the Inquisition takes someone captive as part of the main storyline or any sidequests. Interacting with the throne in Skyhold will trigger the quest, prompting you to cast judgment over the Inquisition's prisoners.

Though you will likely already have a prisoner by the time you reach Skyhold, you will need to leave the area and then return in order to prompt the first "Sit in Judgment" quest. For a full list of all judgment choices you can make and the outcomes, we've got everything covered right here.
