If any sheriff, clerk, or other officer fails to discharge any duty required of him
by any provision of Title 5, upon petition the appellate court or the superior, state,
or city court, as the case may be, may compel the performance of such duty by mandamus.
No party shall lose any right by reason of the failure of the officer to discharge
his duties when the party has been guilty of no fault himself and has exercised ordinary
diligence to secure the discharge of such duties.
