accord (to introduce a legal citation)

    Apparently “accord” is a legal signal to introduce a case that clearly supports the proposition for which another case is being quoted directly:

    Example: "See Wong Sun v. United States, 371 U.S. 471 (1963). Accord, State v. Hansen, 91 Or. App. 189 (1988)."

    My attempt: Véase Wong Sun v. Estados Unidos, 371 U.S. 471 (1963); en conformidad con Estado v. Hansen, 91 Or. App. 189 (1988).

    Thanks for any suggestions you may have.

    Don't know if that's standard in the trade, but it sounds really good to me.
