amparo* dismissed


Explanation:
* T.N. - "amparo" is an order for protection against the action of authorities, a very powerful provision in Mexican law that has no adequate translation into English.

You don't say what country but if it is Mexico, this is all you can say. There is no term in English to even remotely describe it.

action or proceeding for relief


Explanation:
In Spanish "amparo" is a constitutional guarantee for civil rights and a "juicio de amparo" is an action or proceeding for relief which resembles United States writs of prohibition

review, judicial review


Explanation:
In judicial proceedings, "recurso de amparo" always involves a request for review of a procedure (by a higher court having jurisdiction). There's no need to get into country-located details, which would be unnecessary if the plain phrase "request for judicial review" were used.
