Two more verbs to consider:

lob                        obey
jegh                      surrender

They also have a more “Klingon” feel to them.

So: what, if anything, is Klingon for "deference"?

I don't have an answer, but some words to keep in mind include

ma'                 accommodate
HeQ                comply
laj                    accept
Qochbe'          agree
chaw'              permit

Maybe you could say something like this: bo'DIj yoj wIlaj We accept the court's judgement or bo'DIj yoj wIma' We will accommodate the court's judgment.
