Robert L. Cummings, Appellant, v. Lamont Smith, Warden, Georgia State Prison, Reidsville, Georgia, Appellee, 396 F.2d 219 (5th Cir. 1968)

Annotate this Case
U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit - 396 F.2d 219 (5th Cir. 1968)

May 29, 1968

Robert L. Cummings, pro se.

Mathew Robins, Asst. Atty. Gen., Arthur K. Bolton, Atty. Gen., Marion O. Gordon, Asst. Atty. Gen., Joel C. Williams, Jr., Deputy Asst. Atty. Gen., Atlanta, Ga., for appellee.

Before TUTTLE and SIMPSON, Circuit Judges, and BREWSTER, District Judge.


This appeal is from an order denying habeas corpus relief to a Georgia State convict. We do not reach the merits, having been advised by the respondent-appellee that the petitioner-appellant was discharged from custody on March 19, 1968, more than a month before the date the appeal was docketed before us. The appeal is dismissed for mootness.

Appeal dismissed.
