Law/Patents - Law (general)
Spanish term or phrase: Ofreció prueba y fundó su derecho
This appears in an Argentine case file regarding a suit between two parties. The individual is demanding compensation from a company that drilled on his land and abandoned their operations. This phrase appears twice in the initial section where the details of the case are given. I will give both examples below and include the text that precedes it:

"Expuso que los rubros que reclama son gastos de control, indemnización por instalaciones especiales, construcción de caminos, y calculó el pago de capital hasta los 5 años posteriors a haber sido abandonadas las instalaciones.

Ofreció prueba y fundó su derecho."

"... afirmando por último que si el actor considera que los importes recibidos no son suficientes, debería acreditar los perjuicios sufridos cuya reparación supera ese monto.

Ofreció prueba y fundó su derecho."

Of course, I understand the general meaning of it. But I don't see the most optimal way to render it into English, and I want to get it right given that it appears twice on the same page. Also, if anyone has a great translation for "rubros" that would be great, it's quite an obscure word.

A claim can be justified without having been reached via a process of reasoning; it can be justified without one yet having offered evidence for it. That contrasts ...

Note also that, in law, evidence is not (necessarily) proof.
