In the same way that to lean towards something is to have an opinion or a set of views, the word lean is also used in court and in other areas involving official decisions by either commissions or even governments. Examples:

"When oil prices rise too high, the auto industry always starts experiencing lean times," or "During a recession, many families go through some lean times."
