Writ of Error This is used mainly to correct errors in court procedure. E.g., when a clerk of a court of record accepts an order from a judge, that would be an error in procedure because a judge is not permitted to originate orders in a court of record. A writ of error would order the judge's order to be rescinded. See Example and Bouvier's Definition
