Hi,
can anyone help me with this expression?
It's in a writ of summons:

"la société XXX est recevable et bien fondée à solliciter la condamnation de la YYY à lui payer cette somme..."

    Hi,

    Une possibilité :

    The company XXX is admissible and well-founded to seek a court injunction ordering the payment of this sum by YYY

    Si la question de la "recevabilité" a consisté à examiner la "qualité pour agir" du demandeur, votre traduction, bh7, me paraît excellente et je m'y rallie volontiers.

    Merci à vous deux ! Seulement, est-ce que la recevabilité signifie justement la qualité d'agir ? D'après ce que je vois dans les dictionnaires, c'est plutôt le "caractère de ce contre quoi il n'existe aucun obstacle juridique à l'examen du fond"...

    For the time being, I've put it in a very simple way: "Company XXX has the right to legitimately seek an award against YYY for payment of this sum"

    Do you think it would work in a pleading?

    Je ne crois pas que cela convienne car, d'une part, "right" et "legitimately" sont redondants et, d'autre part, la question de la "recevabilité" et celle du bien fondé de la demande sur le fond sont deux questions juridiquement différentes et votre traduction les confond.

    Another possibility:
    xxx has shown just cause and is well within it's rights to seek a judgement claim against yyy for that amount (assuming the amount has been stated) or in the amount of $$$
