Spanish term or phrase: provocatorios
procesos provocatorios

Aparece dentro de una sentencia del Ecuador.

El presente juicio no busca una declaración judicial de certeza respecto a que no procede el arbitraje como objeto de la pretensión del actor, lo que podría ocurrir si en nuestro sistema procesal existiera la figura de los procesos provocatorios

provocative litigation


Explanation:
"the ACLU tends to blind-side schools with highly publicized and provocative litigation."

http://www.nsba.org/site/doc_sbn.asp?TRACKID=&VID=58&CID=335...

"Interesting or amusing usually qualifies as links to provocative litigation (i.e., the spilled coffee in the lap; Mr. Jack Ass suing the MTV show JackAss for defaming his character; class actions against fast-food joints for making us fat, etc)."

'vexatious' creo seria, 'litigio vejatorio. es decir una demanda presentada por motivos de venganza, etc. y sin fundamento' (*) (* Varo-Hughes - Dicc Term Jurid)

"Vexatious - Law. (of legal actions) instituted without sufficient grounds and serving only to cause annoyance to the defendant."

"provocative litigation" es una demanda que TIENE un fundamento, pero puede ser controversial.

proceso provocatorio
originating process (triggering a suit)


Explanation:
Nthg to do with provocativo and a false friend, a provocatorio launches an action.

A vexatious or provocative mortgage foreclosure action by a mortgagee, as in the web ref., would be extremely unlikely.

Also, arbitration postulated as an alternative is quite incongruous.



'2.2 Originating process and interlocutory process — Forms 2 and 3

(1) Unless these Rules otherwise provide, a person must make an application required or permitted by the Corporations Act to be made to the Court:

(a) if the application is not made in a proceeding already commenced in the Court — by filing an originating process; and

(b) in any other case — by filing an interlocutory process.

(2) Unless the Court otherwise directs, a person may make an application to the Court in relation to a proceeding in respect of which final relief has been granted by filing an interlocutory process in that proceeding.

(3) An originating process must:

(a) be in accordance with Form 2; and

(b) state:

(i) each section of the Corporations Act or the ASIC Act, or each regulation of the Corporations Regulations, under which the proceeding is brought; and

(ii) the relief sought.'



Cf. the French 'provoquer des ordres' etc.
