IN RE: Vinodh RAGHUBIR (2020)

United States Court of Appeals, Federal Circuit.

IN RE: Vinodh RAGHUBIR, Petitioner


Decided: June 18, 2020

Vinodh Raghubir, Pro Se Russell James Upton, Trial Attorney, Department of Justice, Commercial Litigation Branch, Civil Division, Washington, DC, for Respondent



Vinodh Raghubir currently has a case pending before the United States Court of Federal Claims. He now petitions for a writ of prohibition, asking this court to “prohibit conduct pursuant to ‘the conspiracy to predetermine the outcome of judicial proceedings’ throughout proceedings now involving the Federal Court of Claims.”

Like a writ of mandamus, a writ of prohibition is a drastic remedy that is available only when a petitioner has a clear and indisputable right to relief and no adequate alternative legal channels through which to obtain that relief. See Cheney v. U.S. Dist. Court for the Dist. of Columbia, 542 U.S. 367, 380–81, 124 S.Ct. 2576, 159 L.Ed.2d 459 (2004); In re Missouri, 664 F.2d 178, 180 (8th Cir. 1981). Mr. Raghubir has not demonstrated that an appeal from an eventual final judgment of the Court of Federal Claims would be inadequate or that he has a clear and indisputable right to relief.


It Is Ordered That:

The petition is denied.

Per Curiam.
