California Civil Writ Practice

Get a thorough understanding of all aspects of preparing, filing, or opposing a writ petition. CEB’s updated California Civil Writ Practice includes many important developments to writ practice, such as new case law discussing how habeas corpus can be used to challenge commitments to a psychiatric facility, how writ petition may be combined with a complaint for declaratory relief, how traditional mandate can issue to invalidate legislative acts in excess of a governing body’s authority, and how irreparable injury is a requirement for the grant of supersedeas.
