Hi all, I'm translating a movie about Mary Surratt, the woman who was tried for conspiring to murder President Lincoln. When she is found guilty and sentenced to be hung, her counsel asks another lawyer what could be done. His answer is: You have two options. One: petition the President for a stay of execution... Two: apply for a writ of habeas corpus to retry her in a civilian court, but no judge would opposeStanton... The counsel then asks a friend: Do you think Judge Wylie will give me a writ of habeas corpus? I am not familiar with legal terminology. So, I am wondering if ordine di comparizione in Italian would do. thanks all diana *Italian definition of writ of habeas corpus: Un documento che impone a chi detiene un prigioniero di portarlo di fronte a un magistrato per stabilire la legalità della sua detenzione.
