LWP 1.1 APPLICATION FOR WRIT (a) Filing. Any party seeking an extraordinary writ pursuant to Chapter 7.16 RCW concerning the action of a district or municipal court shall file an application or petition and schedule a show cause hearing before the presiding judge no later than 14 days after the filing to determine whether the requested writ shall be granted. The order setting a show cause hearing may stay further proceedings in the lower court if proceedings are scheduled there prior to the show cause hearing. (b) Scheduling. If the presiding judge, or other superior court judge to whom the matter may be assigned, grants an order issuing an extraordinary writ to review a decision of a district or municipal court, the court will also enter a hearing schedule which shall state the due dates for the briefs of the parties, the filing of the written transcript, and the date on which the parties will return to court for assignment and argument. No continuance or extension shall be entered which does not also reset the hearing schedule. The time frame for scheduling shall be consistent with that of LRALJ 4.1(a) unless circumstances dictate that less time be allowed. (c) [Deleted] Amended effective 1/1/01
