A court is a government institution with the authority to hear and resolve legal disputes. Such institutions are presided over by a judge or arbiter.

Arbitration is sometimes used as an alternative to court proceedings. (TNG: "Devil's Due")

Most governments have different levels of courts, through which cases must work their way through. For example, the highest court in the United Federation of Planets is the Federation Supreme Court. (DS9: "Doctor Bashir, I Presume")

In 2374, Quark stated that he was willing to share the latinum he inherited from Morn after his supposed death with Larell. He said he did that so she would not tie him up in court contesting the will. (DS9: "Who Mourns for Morn?")
