Holladay's Lexicon (based on Koehler and Baumgartner) gives (1) decision by 
arbitration, legal decision; (2) legal case; (3) legal claim; (4) conformity; 
(5) justice.  Koehler and Baumgartner's HALOT (volume 1) gives this chain: 
ruling> legal decision, judgment> case> law, right, claim> what is due to someone 
in a case.
