Technically,the judgment of a court of equity.Today,states have abolished the distinctions between courts of law,which followed fairly strict rules of law and awarded damages to injured parties, and courts of equity, which generally tried to do what was fair and just (equitable) and issued decrees to people ordering them to do something,or to stop doing something.Causes of action are grounded in law or equity,but the same court and same judge now hear everything.
