French term or phrase: Rabat
Hello,

I'm having a really hard time finding the meaning of this term and I've looked everywhere. There's very little context. It appears as follows:

PAR CES MOTIFS:

Le Juge aux Affaires Familiales, statuant en matière civile, publiquement, par décision contradictoire et en premier ressort:

[...]

RABAT l'ordonnance de clôture.

That's pretty much it.

It also appears earlier in the following sentence:

Il y a lieu d'ordonner le rabat de l'ordonnance de clôture, dans l'intérêt de l'administration d'une bonne justice.


I am thinking it may refer to dismissing the order to close the pre-trial review but I am really at a loss. Anything would be helpful. Thank you!

Explanation:
.. of the order closing a Magistrate's / Scots Sheriff's investigation pre- any committal for trial : FHS Bridge,

Rabattre : set aside a judg/e/ment obtained by default etc.: FHS Bridge.

'And' no, not a rebate of legal costs obtained for a wrongful criminal conviction - though I can see that one coming...

neutral  philgoddard: It's a verb.

agree  Peter Shortall: Agree with Phil, but I also agree that "sets aside (the order...)" is the phrase. "Rabat" is the present tense of "rabattre" (3rd person singular)

agree  Mpoma: "set aside" according to Bridge
6 hrs

agree  AllegroTrans: "sets aside" but this should be your suggestion and not a noun and your confusing addition
13 hrs

agree  Eliza Hall: "Sets aside" for the first and "setting aside" for the second, yes. Adjournment, no, not at all. See discussion.
