    Help with vernacular of the US Code

    TITLE 28 App. > FEDERAL > TITLE > Rule 21

    a)Mandamus or Prohibition to a Court: Petition, Filing, Service, and Docketing.

    (1)A party petitioning for a writ of mandamus or prohibition directed to a court must file a petition with the circuit clerk with proof of service on all parties to the proceeding in the trial court. The party must also provide a copy to the trial-court judge. All parties to the proceeding in the trial court other than the petitioner are respondents for all purposes.


    Can anyone offer some help with legal meaning of "with regard to proof of service on all parties"?

    The problem with America is stupidity.
    I'm not saying there should be capital punishment for stupidity, but why don't we just take the safety labels off of everything and let the problem solve itself?
