Equity V

Over time the judges began to develop a writ system i.e. they issued a written order compelling an individual to take specific action and only allowed individuals remedy under certain circumstances or certain instances.

The writ system however was too simplistic and there were no remedies that were available if the offence did not comply with what constitutes an offence as stipulated by a writ and therefore a plaintiff though he may have been genuinely aggrieved, may not be able to obtain a remedy because the offence was not committed in the manner that was stipulated or laid out in the writ.
