Spanish term or phrase:acuosidad
I am translating a South-American (Ecuador) legal document, and in this part the Judge states that he has followed the case with all the "acuosidad" possible. I could't find the term in any of my dictionaries, in this context, so have translated it as "diligence", but only because it seemed that this was what was meant. I would love to have a confirmation/re-assurance!!
Explanation: I think this term is a figurative term using the fluidity of water, which permeates (and gets into) everything as a metaphor. This shows that he considered (or permeated through) everything to make his decision.

Then there's "ACUIDAD" which means mental acuity or AGUDEZA (de los sentidos)
Explanation: I would think a judge would use his mental acuity to determine matters with deliberance & widom. Just a thought!! Good Luck, Abril W.
