Sorry folks, it is Sunday and the Public Law Library is closed and the University's Library that has been my "Sunday" back-up is on spring recess. I want to turn this in first thing Monday morning and can only find District court forms online. I need to submit this in Superior Court. Reason is simple, filed a petition for a writ of mandate; turned it into the clerk on Friday, got home and realized page # 2 was accidentally left out (it would HAVE to be the Introduction, Parties,& a few paragraphs of the background wouldn't it?!)
So to correct my error and add the page what "legal" structure must my Notice of Errata include? For example, does it require me to attach a proposed order instructing the page be added to the petition along with the notice telling of my blunder? Thank you

I believe the proper approach would be to file an "amended" petition for writ of mandate in which you correct all errors.
There is no particular structure or format. It does not require you to attach a proposed order because you are not asking the court for permission to do anything.
