English translation:lit. = letter
Explanation:
Lit. (Latin) stands for 'letter', i.e. in this case letter c. I think that you can leave 'lit.' in this regard.

Good luck!

Litera


Explanation:
Just to be exact, looking lit. up in Duden and a Abkurzungswoerterbuch shows that lit. is short for litera which is Latin for letter.

Explanation:
I too am currently doing something legal and in my research I found a reference to a US law (Securities Excahnge Act), given as such: Art. 2; 15 U.S. C.A. Art. 80a-2(a)(16). Obviously, there is no reference to letter necessary, since it is obvious.
