Concurrent Writs

Concurrent Writs

Court orders issued in duplicate originals; several orders issued at the same time for the same purpose.

A court could, for example, issue concurrent writs ordering the arrest of a person whose whereabouts were unknown, or it could issue concurrent writs for service on several defendants in a single lawsuit.
