People v. Some Dude

Petition for Peremptory Writ of Mandate and Request for Immediate Stay


After losing in the trial court on the motion for unmonitored contact visits, I filed a Petition for Peremptory Writ of Mandate and Request for Immediate Stay in the Fifth Appellate District Court.

The postcard denial which I received changed my life and may yet result in my leaving what is sometimes referred to as the practice of "law."

After the denial, my client refused to allow me to pursue the matter further, requesting that I meet with him notwithstanding the presence of the intercom. For a little while after this, I noticed it also took me longer to get into the jail. I would sit for up to 30 minutes in the interview room, waiting for my clients to appear.

I'm sure there's no connection. It's just one of those things.
