After two more unsuccessful attempts to obtain a writ of mandamus, in cases where the Court found that the power to bring the claim had not been conferred by law on the courts of the United States, except in support of pre-existing jurisdiction,267 a litigant in Kendall v.

This was the United States District Court for the District of Columbia, which was held to have jurisdiction because the common law in force in Maryland when the transfer of the part of the state that became the District of Columbia in the United States remained in effect in the district. The federal courts therefore established early on the rule that mandamus can only be issued if authorized by constitutional law and within the limits imposed by common law and the separation of powers.269 305 28 U.S.C. § 2241(d).

The appropriate procedure for applications for injunctions is not merely civil or criminal in nature, as it involves the presumption of lack of authority, so that the official who is the defendant has the burden of proving that he has the power to do or not to do something, otherwise the court has no discretion but decides for the applicant, which can be anyone. not just an interested party. In this respect, they differ from an application in civil proceedings, where the burden of proof lies with the applicant and standing may be at stake. The development of pleadings as a means of bringing a claim was a form of “standard justice” designed to enable English courts to deal quickly with claims by classifying each form of complaint in a standard category that could be dealt with according to standard procedures. The applicant simply asked the court to send the statement most relevant to his complaint to the offender, who ordered him, under royal authority, to go to a royal court to answer for his actions. This was part of the creation of a Court of Common Pleas to deal with routine complaints from Crown subjects, such as “Someone damaged my property.” The old judicial system of the Royal Court of Chancery was definitely fit for purpose and therefore time-consuming. Thus, in most cases, obtaining a declaration became necessary for a case to be heard by one of the royal courts, such as the King`s Bench or Common Pleas. Some franchise courts, particularly in Palatine counties, had their own system of pleadings, often reflecting or anticipating common law pleadings. The application was “served” (personally served) on the offender and served as an order to appear before the court specified in the originating application at a certain time and date, or he could order another act on behalf of the addressee.
