we issued a cashier's check as a deposit for lawsuit. How do I record?

We had our bank issue a cashier's check deposited with the government against a lawsuit.  I want to know how to record that so that when the bank reconciliation is done, that transaction is there.

create an asset account called something like pre-payment lawsuit

then enter the payment and use that account as the expense (reason) for the payment
