What is a Judicial Review Hearing?

A person may request one Judicial Review (WIC 5275) also known as a Writ of Habeas Corpus per hold of a Certification Review Hearing decision finding probable cause. Also, a person may choose to bypass the probable cause hearing for direct Judicial Review. The Mental Health Hearing Referee will prepare the Writ of Habeas Corpus for the patient’s signature, serve the facility with a copy, and file the Writ with the Court for hearing.


  • Important
  • The Writ must be filed with the Court on the date taken and heard in Court within two judicial days.
