"The lower court ruling still stands/holds."
"The century-old law still stands/holds."
"The offer to buy the car still stands/holds."
"After a review by the officials, the result of the game stands/holds."
Could "stand" or "hold" be more appropriate in some sentences?
I have a personal preference for "stands" in all of these sentences, actually. "Hold" often means to contain. For example:
This book holds the secret to finding the perfect used car.
