PROCEDENDO. The writ of procedendo ad judicium (for proceed ing to judgment), issues in England, out of the court of Chancery, commanding an inferior court, which improperly delays judgment, to give it, but, of course, without specifying what judgment is to be given ; since judgment, if erroneous, must be corrected by means of a writ of error or an appeal. Disobedience to a writ of procedendo may be punished as a contempt.
