Concurrent Writ Law and Legal Definition

Concurrent writs are duplicate of the original writs issued either at the same time as the original writ or at any time during which the original writ is valid. For example a court can issue concurrent writs ordering the arrest of a person whose whereabouts are not known. It could also refer to several orders issued at the same time for the same purpose. For example, a court can issue concurrent writs for service on several defendants in a single lawsuit.
