French term or phrase:soutenir une demande
Another item in my table of actions in relation to a product recall. What I am trying to find out is whether "demande" means demand, request, etc, or whether it means "legal claim", in which case "soutenir" would presumably mean "withstand" or "oppose"?
maintain,uphold, or submit a claim or an application
Explanation: all depends on the nature of the soutenir (ie : maintain is the action to uphold, to uphold is in the case of an improper litigation (The law of torts / by John G. Fleming.), to submit is to begin or conduct litigation -Termium)
