lawfare
 n.— «Islamists with financial means have launched a legal jihad, manipulating democratic court systems to suppress freedom of expression, abolish public discourse critical of Islam, and establish principles of Sharia law. The practice, called “lawfare,” is often predatory, filed without a serious expectation of winning and undertaken as a means to intimidate and bankrupt defendants.» —“Mark Steyn Is Not Alone” by Brooke M. Goldstein American Spectator Jan. 15, 2008. (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)
