Do the parties have any legal responsibility to nominate the person that gets the appropriate number of delegates, or is it just the expected/accepted outcome?

I think the parties are free to set their own rules for how the nomination process works, but I suppose a candidate who got the most delegates but was denied the nomination could sue for one reason or another.
The delegates themselves usually sign something committing to vote for the candidate they are the delegate for, but I don't remember how binding it is.
