In Re Melvin Lenkin, Thelma Z. Lenkin, Petitioners, 966 F.2d 702 (D.C. Cir. 1992)

Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit - 966 F.2d 702 (D.C. Cir. 1992) May 20, 1992

Before WALD, D.H. GINSBURG and SENTELLE, Circuit Judges.



Upon consideration of the petition for writ of mandamus and the opposition thereto, it is

ORDERED that the petition be denied. Mandamus is a drastic remedy "to be invoked only in extraordinary circumstances." Allied Chemical Corp. v. Daiflon Inc., 449 U.S. 33, 34 (1980). Petitioners have failed to establish that their right to such extraordinary relief is "clear and indisputable." See Kerr v. United States District Court, 426 U.S. 394, 403 (1976); In Re Dep't of Defense, 848 F.2d 232, 235 (D.C. Cir. 1988). It is

FURTHER ORDERED that this court's order of May 16, 1992, staying the district court's pretrial order be vacated.
