Explanation: According to Romain's Dict of legal terms you can choose from grievance, gravamen or cause of complaint. In this context I would say that you could use any of these. Hope this helped some!

Explanation: If the "Beschwer" in this case refers to a grievance about something like property tax, for example, and the plaintiff or petitioner is appealing the amount, you could say "The value under appeal is over DM 60,000." An example where such a construction is used can be found at the URL listed below.
