The last petition for writ of certiorari I wrote was regarding a judge who refused to recuse herself after making biased statements in open court. A petition for writ of certiorari begins an interlocutory appeal. That is, it asks an appellate court to review a judge’s order in the middle of a case. Like other writs, the petition for writ of certiorari is not for the faint of heart. It’s one of a group of legal documents called extraordinary writs, and they are all hard to get.
And if you need help representing yourself in civil court, it’s time to join Courtroom5.
