If you're looking for the Latin for "to lie", meaning "to deceive", then the verb is mentiri.

However, I'm not a lawyer, so I'm not 100% sure that this is the specific term that you were looking for.

You might find the website helpful, as it contains a long list of Latin terms used in the Law. Hope this helps a bit!
