Terms Used In Arizona Laws > Title 25 > Chapter 3 > Article 7

  • Action: includes any matter or proceeding in a court, civil or criminal. See Arizona Laws 1-215
  • Chambers: A judge's office.
  • Conciliation court: means a court of conciliation provided for in this article. See Arizona Laws 25-381.02
  • Contract: A legal written agreement that becomes binding when signed.
  • Equitable: Pertaining to civil suits in "equity" rather than in "law." In English legal history, the courts of "law" could order the payment of damages and could afford no other remedy. See damages. A separate court of "equity" could order someone to do something or to cease to do something. See, e.g., injunction. In American jurisprudence, the federal courts have both legal and equitable power, but the distinction is still an important one. For example, a trial by jury is normally available in "law" cases but not in "equity" cases. Source: U.S. Courts
