A conclusion reached after an evaluation of facts and law.

As a generic term, decision refers to both administrative and judicial determinations. It includes final judgments, rulings, and inter-locutory or provisional orders made by the court pending the outcome of the case. Frequently, a decision is considered the initial step in a rendition by a court of a judgment in an action.

When referring to judicial matters, a decision is not the same as an opinion, although the terms are sometimes used interchangeably. A decision is the pronouncement of the solution of the court or judgment in a case, while an opinion is a statement of the reasons for its determination made by the court.
