Italian term or phrase: azioni di responsabilità
Any ideas here?
It's in a clause defining one of the powers of the members' meeting (in a quango)
"delibera sulle azioni di responsabilità contro gli amministratori ed in tal caso facultizza i nuovi amministratori o i liquidatori ad esercitarle"

Liability action
Explanation:
http://www.briefreporter.com/productsliability.htm

"Watkins v. Telsmith, Inc. (5th Cir. 1996)
In a product liability action for a defective conveyor, a civil engineer who had no experience with conveyor design could not qualify as an expert witness to testify on matters of mechanical engineering and machine design."


"Jaurequi v. John Deere Co. (8th Cir. 1997)
Plaintiff's non-scientific expert testimony was improperly excluded in his product liability action...because it was improperly treated as scientific evidence."

Thanks indeed, I'm basing myself on the first answer, but copying liberally from Heather's answer too. Is this allowed?

liability-based legal proceedings


Explanation:
That is, the meeting has the power to deliberate (the verb, of course, meaning "to discuss and decide on") liability-based legal proceedings against the existing (and, presumably, soon-to-be-former) directors and, in such an instance, to make it possible or easier for the new directors or receivers to exercise that (same) power.
