Case Caption: In Re: People of the Virgin IslandsCase Number: S. Ct. Civ. No. 2011-0056Date: 09/27/2011Author: Per CuriamCitation: Summary:

In a petition by the People of the Virgin Islands requesting issuance of a writ of mandamus - or the exercise of inherent supervisory authority over the Superior Court - to compel the Nominal Respondent, a Superior Court judge, to recuse herself from presiding in the underlying criminal matter, the petitioner has failed to establish that it lacks other adequate means to attain the desired relief, or that its right to a writ of mandamus is clear and indisputable. In addition, insufficient argument was presented in this petition for the exercise of inherent supervisory power. Therefore, the petition is denied.
