Prosecutors cannot use writs of mandamus or prohibition as a tool to force judges not to take cases under advisement. Thanks to John McChesney et al. for their efforts in making this clear. In re: Commonwealth's Attorney for the City of Roanoke.

This means that In re Commonwealth's Attorney for Chesterfield County, 229 Va. 159, 163, 326 S.E.2d 695, 698 (1985) cannot take place as of today.
