A Grama in Halacha (Jewish law) is something that was caused by something else but whose outcome is not guaranteed.

There is a rule that Grama benizakin patur. If somebody caused financial harm to somebody else via an action that was not guaranteed to harm them, the person cannot be forced by a court to pay, although he might be morally obligated to.
