Concur

CONCUR

To agree; coincide; act together. To concur is to evidence consent in an affirmative or concrete manner as opposed to merely acquiescing or silently submitting to a decision.

In appellate court practice, a judge may file a concurring opinion, which expresses accord with the conclusions of the majority opinion filed in the same lawsuit but at the same time separately states the judge's reason for reaching the same conclusions.
