Spanish term or phrase: Líbrense los despachos del caso
Hello everyone

I have encountered this expression in a legal text (a letter from a judge in one jurisdiction to a judge in another, requesting service of court papers). I can see from a Google search that it is a stock phrase that appears in many court orders - in bankruptcy proceedings, for example - but it is badly translated in automatic Google translations, and I can't find it anywhere else.

Does anyone know the equivalent phrase in English?

Thanks in advance

Literally, it would be...Clean these files off of your desk (or out of your office)-It's the judge telling the other judge......I'm dealing with this issue now, so please rid yourself of everything by sending it to me..............
