In medieval times judicial duels were used to settle accusations and disputes, in the absence of witnesses or a confession. Two parties fought in single combat and the winner was proclaimed to be right.

Some people involved in civil suits may still resort to their own form of dispute resolution, or settle for unreasonable offers from the opposing side, rather than face months of delays trying to resolve cases through backlogged and under-supported courts.
