French term or phrase: Legal abbreviation
(ATF 98 II 325, c. 3c).

I see this c. appearing all the time, but cannot quite figure out what its English equivalent is.
This pertains to Swiss law. The ATF is Arrets du Tribunal Federal.

Please only respond if you know the exact answer. Thanks.

English translation:ATF 98 II 325, c. 3c
Explanation:
You should leave it as it is. If you translate it, no one will be able to look up the reference. Depending on the context, you may need to spell ATF out in full, but if it's a footnote, just reproduce it exactly.

I guess the respondent Charles Davis's answer was the closest one. However, he did not enter a formal answer.

Notes to answerer
Asker: Well, I had some more abbreviations, e.g., CO. Maybe I should just forget about it. Takes too long to figure out. Btw, I am not translation them, just annotating their meaning.
