The term habeas corpus refers most commonly to the writ of habeas corpus ad subjiciendum, which directs the custodian of a prisoner to bring that prisoner before a court and explain the reasons for his or her confinement. A writ of habeas corpus is a challenge to the legality of a prisoner's detention and does not directly or necessarily entail an inquiry into the prisoner's guilt or innocence. After examining the reasons for confinement, the court that issued the writ may release the prisoner or remand the prisoner into custody. The "great writ of liberty," as it is often called, is a judicial remedy aimed at preventing the arbitrary use of executive power to imprison individuals without just cause.
The writ of habeas corpus . . . is known as “the Great Writ.” It generally is a procedural remedy commanding a custodian, such as a sheriff, to bring a detained party, such as a prisoner, before the court to show cause for the detainment and to prove whether the detainment is lawful or justified. If the detainment is not lawful or justified, the detained party may be released.
The habeas corpus statutes begin at 28 U.S.C. 2241. ( do search)
