  • 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.

For example, a trial by jury is normally available in "law" cases but not in "equity" cases. Source: U.S. Courts
