Question about "decrees, suits and countersuits"

I read this sentence a little differently - I read it as if "depositions and decrees" were opposed and "suits and countersuits" were opposed. A similar example might be "the ins and outs, rights and wrongs, of the situation." If they were meant to be coupled like that, would the punctuation have been right as it was?

Yes, I think you are right, Tisha! Thank you for pointing that out.
