Lat.: to be informed of. A means of gaining appellate review; a common law writ, issued by a superior court to a lower court, commanding the latter to certify and return to the former a particular case record so that the higher court may inspect the proceedings for irregularities or errors.

"“Common law certiorari is an extraordinary remedy and should not be used to circumvent the interlocutory appeal rule which authorizes appeal from only a few types of non-final orders.” Martin-Johnson, Inc., v. Savage, 509 So.2d 1097, 1098 (Fla. 1987). For an appellate court to review a nonfinal order by petition for certiorari, the petitioner must demonstrate that the trial court departed from the essential requirements of the law, thereby causing irreparable injury which cannot be adequately remedied on appeal following final judgment."
"To obtain certiorari review, a petitioner must demonstrate: (1) the order to be reviewed departs from the essential requirements of law, and (2) it may cause material injury to the petitioner for which remedy by appeal will be inadequate."
