    By the way, the answer provided is correct, but not illustrative. Here's a typical example: WHEREFORE, Plaintiffs/Petitioners pray for judgment as follows as to the Writ: 1. For the issuance of a peremptory writ of mandate pursuant to Code of Civil Procedure section 1085, commanding Defendants, and each of them, to permit Petitioners to develop their properties for cultivation, so long as they comply with applicable building codes; 2. For Petitioners’ attorneys’ fees and costs incurred in this matter as provided by law; and 3. For other such relief as this Court deems proper.

    @A.fm. That would probably be a better as a comment on the answer, but the exmaple doesn't sound like a prayer in England & Wales. Mar 19, 2023 at 12:45
