As defined by the Cleasby & Vigfusson Old Norse to English dictionary:
- fimtardóms-sök (fimtardóms-sǫk)
- f. a case to be brought before the Fifth Court, Grág. i. 360, Nj. 244.
Orthography: The Cleasby & Vigfusson book used letter ö to represent the original Old Norse vowel ǫ. Therefore, fimtardóms-sök may be more accurately written as fimtardóms-sǫk.
