What to expect at a criminal arraignment proceeding.
Exact wording set into a written document which qualifies the signatory as
exempted from its content to the extent that the content may be interpreted as
containing admissions or other interpretations which could later be used against
the person signing; or as otherwise affecting any legal rights of the person
signing. A lawyer will often send a letter "without prejudice" in case the
letter makes admissions which could later prove inconvenient to the client.
An official court document, signed by a judge or bearing an official court seal,
which commands the person to whom it is addressed, to do something specific.
That "person" is typically either a sheriff (who may be instructed to seize
property, for example) or a defendant (for whom the writ is the first notice of
formal legal action). In this case, the writ would command the person to answer
the charges laid out in the suit, or else judgment may be made against them in
Latin: A British common law creation whereby the courts have the right to make
unfettered decisions concerning people who are not able to take care of
themselves. For example, a court can make custody decisions regarding a child or
an insane person, even without statute law to allow them to do so, based on
their residual, common law-based parens patriae jurisdiction.
