SO

utta(eru)

meaning: sue, appeal

提訴 == eiso == (noun that can take する to act as a verb) presening a case, suing
訴訟 ==  soshou == (noun) litigation, lawsuit




Left radical is 'word/speak' (言). Right radical is 'reject' (斥), which here is used phonetically to express 'appeal'. 'Verbal appeal' led to current meanings of litigation. Henshall suggests as a mnemonic: 'Words of rejection lead one to appeal and sue.'
