A court was a government institution with the authority to hear and resolve legal disputes. Such institutions were presided over by a judge or arbiter, often in a courtroom.

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

Most governments had different levels of courts, through which cases worked their way. For example, the highest court in the United Federation of Planets was 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 with Larell after his supposed death. He said he did that so she would not tie him up in court contesting the will. (DS9: "Who Mourns for Morn?")
