German to English translations [PRO] Law/Patents
German term or phrase:angerufen
In a German court decision: "Wir erheben diese Klage ausdrücklich zur angerufenen Kammer des angerufenen Gerichts, und zwar unter tem rechtlichen Gesichtspunkt der Sachzusammenhangs."
Can anyone provide a rendering for "angerufen" in this context?
Explanation: I saw your question only now, but maybe it's not yet too late to consider my answer.
Since "angerufen" appears twice in your sentence, I would use "the Court applied to" at least once.
"to apply" = to request formally of a court; petition; seek (Webster's Dictionary of the Law)
Suggested translation: "For the legal reason of factual connection, we specifically bring this action before [file a suit with] the division that is seized of the matter [case] at the Court applied to."
Sachzusammenhang makes reference to the "Konzentrationsprinzip" of German law which requires individual actions having a connection in terms of their legal or factual position, or with regard to the persons involved, to be jointed as one single action.
