Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!
- Plaintiff is a person who brings a case against another in a court of law.
- A defendant is a person or entity accused of a crime in criminal prosecution or a person or entity against whom some type of civil relief is being sought in a civil case. Terminology varies from one jurisdiction to another.
A conclusion reached after an evaluation of facts and law.
As a generic term, decision refers to both administrative and judicial determinations. It includes final judgments, rulings, and inter-locutory orprovisional orders made by the court pending the outcome of the case. Frequently, a decision is considered the initial step in a rendition by acourt of a judgment in an action.
When referring to judicial matters, a decision is not the same as an opinion, although the terms are sometimes used interchangeably. A decision is the pronouncement of the solution of the court or judgment in a case, while an opinion is a statement of the reasons for its determination made by the court.
In common law legal systems, a precedent or authority is a principle or rule established in a previous legal case that is either binding on or persuasive for a court or other tribunal when deciding subsequent cases with similar issues or facts.
