In Re Dennis S. Davis, Petitioner,, 957 F.2d 911 (D.C. Cir. 1992)

Annotate this Case
U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit - 957 F.2d 911 (D.C. Cir. 1992) Feb. 24, 1992

Before MIKVA, Chief Judge, and RUTH B. GINSBURG and D.H. GINSBURG, Circuit Judges.



Upon consideration of the petition for a writ of mandamus and emergency motion for stay and the opposition, it is

ORDERED that the petition for a writ of mandamus be denied. A writ of mandamus is an extraordinary remedy, available only when the party has no other means to obtain the relief he seeks. See Allied Chemical Corp. v. Daiflon, Inc., 449 U.S. 33, 35 (1980) (per curiam). Petitioner's claim, Supreme Court precedent makes clear, can be pursued only on appeal from the final judgment. Cf. Flanagan v. United States, 465 U.S. 259 (1984). It is

FURTHER ORDERED that the emergency motion for stay be dismissed as moot.
