writ of mandamusI read somewhere else that a writ of mandamus is a serious charge against a court. It's essentially slapping a judge and telling him to do his job correctly. I was under the impression that an appeal should have been the next step instead the extreme accusation, and that's why the supreme court reacted the way it did.
- A writ that compels a government entity to perform mandatory or purely ministerial duties correctly.
- an extraordinary writ commanding an official to perform a ministerial act that the law recognizes as an absolute duty and not a matter for the official's discretion; used only when all other judicial remedies fail
We need to file a “writ of manwhaddamess”!
