certiorari


certiorari
Orden judicial emitida por un tribunal superior por la cual se ordena revisar una actuación de un tribunal inferior.

En Inglaterra, la orden de certiorari originalmente era un mandamiento judicial de los magistrados del Tribunal de la Reina (Rey) dirigido a los jueces de un tribunal inferior, ampliado posteriormente para incluir las órdenes emanadas de los tribunales de equity. En EE.UU., el certiorari es el mecanismo más común por el cual la Corte Suprema de los Estados Unidos de América revisa los fallos de las Cortes de Apelaciones de los Estados Unidos de América. Para que la Corte Suprema acceda a emitir una orden de certiorari, al menos cuatro magistrados deben estar de acuerdo en examinar el asunto.
