1103. (a) A writ of prohibition may be issued by any court to an
inferior tribunal or to a corporation, board, or person, in all cases
where there is not a plain, speedy, and adequate remedy in the
ordinary course of law. It is issued upon the verified petition of
the person beneficially interested.
(b) The appellate division of the superior court may grant a writ
of prohibition directed to the superior court in a limited civil case
or in a misdemeanor or infraction case. Where the appellate division
grants a writ of prohibition directed to the superior court, the
superior court is an inferior tribunal for purposes of this chapter.
