For example, you might want a High Court Judgement which overrides a decision made by the Government or the Municipality or where a decision was not properly made or for example, this could entail insufficient thought given by a governmental body with regard to an administrative decision , and you may request a Court to order such decision-makers to go back to its initial decision ,to relook at certain factors.
