A: In Memphis, Tennessee, if a writ of possession for eviction is withdrawn, it is legally permissible for another writ of possession to be filed shortly thereafter, as occurred in your case from the 18th to the 22nd. The issuance of a writ of possession is part of the legal process that allows a landlord to regain possession of a property. The withdrawal of one writ does not necessarily prevent the filing of a new writ if the landlord still seeks to pursue eviction. The involvement of a private process server and the absence of officers can be standard in some jurisdictions, depending on the local rules and procedures governing evictions.
