What is a Certiorari?

A Certiorari is defined as an appeal to the next highest court following the decision of a lower court or administrative hearing. A person may file a Petition for Certiorari when he or she is dissatisfied with the decision of a lower court and would like the legal decision to be reviewed by a higher court. The court may grant Certiorari, or accept the case, after careful review of the facts and evidence. The Writ of Certiorari is approved when the higher court agrees to hear the appeal. A Certiorari Bond is a surety bond that covers the payments of cost for the transfer of the suit from one court to another.
