English term or phrase: 5-3 decision
Bonjour, je bute sur ce terme et je ne suis pas sûre qu'il y ait un véritable équivalent en français. Voici le contexte :
In a 5-3 decision that split along conservative-liberal lines, the court gave a measure
of protection from securities lawsuits to suppliers, banks, accountants and law firms that do
business with corporations engaging in securities fraud.


Merci de votre aide !
