Portuguese term or phrase:...resgatados no amparo de sentenca em segunda instancia,
Explanation: You should not use "second argument" in this context, it is not English. If you search for the keywords 'aquitted "second argument"' on www.google.com you will not find any examples. However 'aquitted on appeal' has 382 hits.
