Here is my best explanation:

'court document' is the definition.
(I've seen this before)

'unfinished draft' is the subsidiary indication.
'unfinished' means to remove the last letter.
'draft' becomes 'write' (I've seen this before).
'write' with its last letter taken off is 'writ'.

'of' is the link.
