Securing an Order from the Chancellor in a District for a county official to obey an authentic command statutorily codified by the legislature
1)volumes of hard evidence shows good cause exists to obey the ministerial statute
2)undisputable evidence exists to show the county official's refusal constitutes a violation of constitutional and statutorily assured rights of the plaintiff and many others
a)evidence exists to show grave and irreparable damages and injury has been sustained by the plaintiff and others
b)evidence exists to show additional grave and irreparable damages and injury will further accrue to the plaintiff's and other's detriment
3)solid evidence exists to show the county official's refusal is willful with deliberate and callous indifference for 2 above and his motives are self-serving and self-preserving
4)solid evidence exists to show the new county official's long-standing and recently resigned counterpart did find good cause and was initiating proceedings
The chancery docket is nearly full until the 3rd and 4th months of next year, 2019
A hearing on a related matter is already scheduled for the last week in February 2019
A mandamus or injunctive-type relief order needs to be secured long before then and ASAP
The chancellor is quite reasonable and will likely place a correctly plead petition or motion for proper relief ahead of non-emergency matters
How would you suggest this be approached?
Mandamus and including what pleadings to be given top priority?
Injunctive relief and including what pleadings to be given top priority?
Would either be correctly captioned "ex Rel State of Tennessee"?
The same statute has a subsection speaking to the governor who has also been provided notice pursuant to it.
Neither the county official or governor has acted and the case law speaking to these type actions is quite compelling in favor of it being upheld and the rights of the people.
The statute is Tn Code 8-47-103 and 109.
Subsection 110, although a provided as an alternative remedy, isn't viable for a myriad of reasons due to the highly cliquish and klannish nature of the very sparsely populated area largely inhabited by "kissing cousins", and besides, the officials empowered should do their duty without requiring 9 additional persons exposing themselves to certain reprisals and retaliation.
