La palabra del día: Autos

Masculine plural noun. It is the file of a judicial or administrative procedure. It refers also to the set of actions or pieces of a judicial procedure. E.g. El acceso a la pieza confidencial de los autos estará limitado a las partes frente a las cuales no se haya ordenado ningún tratamiento confidencial: Access to the confidential section of the file shall be confined to the parties in respect of whom no confidential treatment has been ordered.
Why I consider this word relevant to be in my blog? Because the word auto, a masculine singular noun that in Argentina means car, in Legal Spanish refers to a judicial resolution that decides secondary, previous, incidental or execution issues, for which no sentence is required; auto interlocutorio, a court order. dc
