ordinary negligence


Explanation:
Mindful or wilful negligence, the direct translation, would be a contradiction in terms.

Contrast with dolus eventualis, which is more recklessness.

Explanation:
Sorry this time I do not agree with Thomas... I would translate it "wilful misconduct/negligence". Otherwise also "intentional".
