The 2018 International Residential Code (IRC), published by the International Code Council (ICC) defines a court as: ‘A space, open and unobstructed to the sky, located at or above grade level on a lot and bounded on three or more sides by walls or a building.’
The word ‘court’ can also refer to a body presided over by an official, such as a judge or a magistrate in civil and criminal cases.
