Queens, NY asked in Appeals / Appellate Law and Civil Litigation for New York

Q: I have a writ of certiorari petition packet from the US Supreme Court that needs to be done on, or before 6/6/2024.

I have difficulties in understanding some pages, such as: 1)related cases 2)in the table of authorities cited on part that asks cases 3)statement of the case. These are the 3 that I have difficulties in understanding, in which, I have to make sure that I fill it out correctly or it will get rejected by US Supreme Court in DC. So my questions are what does related case mean? What does cases mean on the table of authorities cited part? What does statement of the case mean?
