(civil proceedings)

English translation:statement of defense/defence
Explanation:
Verteidigungsanzeige = no hits in any of my dictionaries, but this is appears to be a synonym for Klageerwiderung

Alta Vista hits: 7 - Google: 8 - Northern Light: 5

Klageerwiderung = "defence (BE) defense (AE) plea" - Pons Fachwörterbuch Recht

Klageerwiderung = "statement of defence (BE) defense (AE)" or "defence (BE) defense (AE) plea" or "defendant's plea" - Hamblock/Wessels Großwörterbuch Wirtschaftsenglisch

Klageerwiderung = "statement of defence (BE) defense (AE)" or in matrimonial proceedings "answer" EURODICAUTOM

Klageerwiderung einreichen = "to respond" - Hamblock/Wessels Großwörterbuch Wirtschaftsenglisch

Klageerwiderung yielded the following hits

Alta Vista: 164 - Google: 670 - Northern Light: 405

"defense plea" (AE) yielded the following hits

Northern Light: 484 - Google: 426 - Alta Vista: 159

"defence plea" (BE) yielded the following hits

Alta Vista: 86 - Google: 234 - Northern Light: 193

"statement of defence" (BE) yielded the following hits

Northern Light: 10400 - Google: 2300 - Alta Vista: 1000

"statement of defense" (AE) yielded the following hits

Northern Light: 41000 - Google: 1400 - Alta Vista: 364

Why the various search engines are not roughly proportional puzzles me but it seems quite clear that either the British or American version of

"statement of defense/defence"

has the most support from web usage and dictionaries.

agree  JD Graduate : Ergänzend für Archivsucher: die Verteidigungsanzeige ist lediglich eine Mitteilung der Verteidigungsabsicht (notice of defence intention) und kann/muss innerhalb einer festgesetzten Frist der Klageerwiderung vorausgehen. Letztere hat dann mehr Zeit
