A Scholarly or Peer-Reviewed source has been reviewed by a team of experts in that field to make sure something is scholarly, factual, and worth publishing. A legal document does not fit those criteria because it isn't published in a journal - it's just published by the courts. That's not to say it isn't a good resource though! It would actually be considered a primary source.
