What Did the Writ of Mandamus Do?

A writ of mandamus is a court order compelling a government official, agency, or lower court to perform a duty they are legally obligated to complete. It serves as a legal tool to ensure that governmental entities act within their authority and fulfill their duties. To obtain this writ, the petitioner must demonstrate a clear legal right to the performance of the duty, that the official has a clear duty to perform the act, and that there is no other adequate remedy available.
