Law/Patents - Law (general) / conclusie van antwoord
Dutch term or phrase: rauwelijks
Again in a court document. What is a good English translation of 'rauwelijks' in this sentence: "partij x heeft rauwelijks deurwaarders op partij y afgestuurd"? One dictionary defines 'rauwelijks' - a word I've never come across before - as 'zonder voorafgaand beraad of onderzoek; pardoes'. Van Dale's translations of 'pardoes' aren't really much help...

Any offers? TIA!
