I understand that it is opposing counsel writing this, with the court's approval.That being said, the court is now attempting to use his original order,which I say is null and void, and this is a clear abuse of discretion by the court,which is why I'm filing the Writs of Mandamus/Prohibition, to force the courtto follow the law of the case. Am I crazy?

I'm defendant in partition suit. I'm ready to apply for a

I'm defendant in partition suit.I'm ready to apply for a writ of mandamus/prohibition and I fit the criteria.(circuit court bias on record throughout)I've already been to Supreme Court (petitioned on a circuit court interlocutory ruling in 2014), and they stated in part,"we find that the language at issue evidences an intention that petitioner, as executrix,be accorded substantial deference in how she interprets the decedent's will.See Moore v. Harper, 27 W.Va. 362, 373 (1886) (it is well settled that courts accord deference to "[t]he power of the testator to provide in [her] will the mode andmanner of its interpretation and the force and effect of such interpretation.")....Thus, we find that petitioner is free to continue to argue that her interpretation of the residuary clause should be accorded deference as long as that interpretation is neither inconsistent with the clause's language nor contrary to law."Moore v. Harper also states in part:"A testator provides in his will that a certain person therein named shall decide all questions, which may arise among his devisees...and that the written opinion of such person shal be final and conclusive among the parties."(The will plainly states that I am to have final say.)Circuit judge agreed (transcript) he must follow this and my 25 pg opinion memorandum, but continues to ignore the will, the supreme court, my opinion memorandum & my following motions containing abundant law.(2 more years of unsuccessful court-ordered mediation, trial deadlines changed, etc...) Judge just disclosed after 4 years that the plaintiff lawyer is his cousin...Trial scheduled for mid-September.Last month the Plaintiff motioned for summary judgment with generic case law.I opposed within 10 days, again with abundant case law for our actual case at hand, that plaintiff cannot partition.(Plaintiff didn't contest will with specific provisions, accepted benefits under doctrine of election, and now cannot partition in a trust w/spendthrift provision, etc.)Today judge's memorandum decision/order was entered.He said he wasn't making a decision,but in effect he did again rule for plaintiff, allowing plaintiff to continue and get 3 commissioners by June 23 to hold hearing to decide on partition type.Now the Writ is ripe to seek. I'm familiar with the Appellate Rules to proceed.Here's the question:What is the protocol at the circuit level now, to make sure I follow correct procedure?Must I first make one last motion to amend this circuit order?(he had no finding of fact or conclusion of law, as usual)Do I inform judge that I am going for the Writs? Do I ask for a stay?

I was released from Prison jan 3rd 2017 and have been hired

I was released from Prison jan 3rd 2017 and have been hired at a tattoo shop. I have been a licensed award winning tattoo artist in this state for 11 years until I moved to Chicago in 2013 to tattoo in that state. I went to prison for 44 month and like I said, I got out and got a job at a tattoo shop in MN. I applied for a license 30 days ago with all the documents and certificates needed. My crime was a Criminal sex case not related to tattooing at all, yet I have been put on hold for the license and givin no date for an answer towards when I will receive my license. This is my career but I am not allowed to work with a very large clientele waiting to pay for my services. What can I do?JA: What state is this in?
