The Writ must be filed within the statutory time limits, if there are any, or within a reasonable time.
The Petition is filed with the next higher Court. The Court can do one of three things:
- Deny relief outright.
- Grant relief outright.
- Request an opposition by the District Attorney.
The Court will issue a Writ directing the lower Court to do or stop doing the matter for which the petition was taken, if it’s granted.
