Spanish term or phrase: que se traiga los autos para sentenciar
The context is the presentation of a case to legal professionals at a seminar for subsequent discussion:

El representante de los taxistas al escuchar tal declaración se puso nervioso y no pudiéndose contener se acercó donde su abogado y manifestó su preocupación, advirtiendo el Juez que había desorden y preguntó a que se debía el barullo, ante lo cual el representante de los taxistas refirió:

“Usted ha dicho **que se traiga los autos para sentenciar**, pero ello es imposible por cuanto todos los transportistas, los conductores de los autos se encuentran en la Audiencia allí presentes y no hay quien “traiga los autos” los vehículos en ese momento al local del Juzgado. Por lo que pido nueva fecha para traer los autos y de esta manera Usted Señor Juez pueda emitir sentencia”.

English translation:that the 'autos' [translator's note...] be brought for
Explanation:
I would use a translator's note using [], stating that here 'autos' means for some parties 'cars' and for other parties 'court orders' or 'court records' : I am not 100% sure about which is the correct solution: 'orders' or 'records', arguably both might potentailly work. A hunch, 'records' could make slightly more sense, to be confirmed.
