A petition for a writ of certiorari. If the Supreme Court agrees to hear the case, they grant cert(iorari); otherwise, they issue an order declare cert(iorari) denied. After the Court accepts a case, it issues a writ of certiorari to the last court to handle the case, ordering the relevant files be sent to the Supreme Court. The case itself is said to be "on certiorari from [name of lower court]" (e.g., On certiorari from the US Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit).
