"You have the body." The name of a writ used to bring a person before a court or judge. Generally, the writ is addressed to an official or person who supervises the detention of others. It commands him or her to produce the detained person in court so that the court may determine whether that person is being denied his or her freedom lawfully.
To suppress a court record is to prevent its release; to suppress evidence is to forbid it from being introduced at a trial or other court proceeding.
