Italian term or phrase: in ipotesi probabilmente limite
Hi all,

Not sure about the meaning of this phrase. The context is:
Stessa posizione è stata assunta, in due sentenze, dai Tribunali in ipotesi – probabilmente limite – in cui, addirittura, le cure eseguite in maniera parziale erano risultate del tutto inutili o dannose per il paziente, per colpa del medico;
My attempt is this:
In two rulings, the same position was taken by the Courts on the assumption - probably borderline - that, even the partial treatment carried out was completely useless or harmful to the patient, because of the doctor’s fault;
Is that correct? Can you have a 'borderline' assumption?
Thanks for any help.
