English term or phrase: purchase annuity policies
It is a lawsuit.

The defendants agreed to purchase annuity policies in lieu of cash.

I know what it means, but spanish words for this fail me.

Hi Deb!
This is a bit tougher than it looks. If you check the translation for "annuity", it can mean [in Spanish] "anualidad", "renta vitalicia", etc. Also, "in lieu of" means "en vez de" or "en lugar de".

I think the key words here are "purchase" and "policies" and that, to me, smacks of "insurance" rather than. Now I may be way off track but if I'm not, then I would suggest something like:
"los demandados aceptaron [or, accedieron a]comprar pólizas de seguron en lugar de dinero en efectivo"...I'll leave it up to your enormous talents.

Hope this helps:-)
