Question

At what point should a writ of mandamus be submitted when awaiting assignment of a vlj?

17 months in waiting to be assigned to a judge in a BVA direct review lane.

Anyone in a similar situation?

While I understand and appreciate the "delay frustration", A writ should only be used as a last resort, only after all other things have been tried.  

A writ is not a substitute for an appeal, nor is it a substitute for an advance on the docket.  

While many/most of us are frustrated at the length of appeals a writ may not be the right way to go about hurrying up your appeal of 17 months.  

Remember, "waiting for a judge" is probably a comment by ebenefits, which is notoriously unreliable and out of date.

That’s very true, thank you for your assistance.
