Mary Usher, Plaintiff-appellee, v. United States of America, Defendant-third-party-plaintiff-appellee, v. Atlanta Transit System, Inc., Third-party-defendant-appellant, 454 F.2d 728 (5th Cir. 1972)

Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit - 454 F.2d 728 (5th Cir. 1972) Feb. 8, 1972. Rehearing Denied March 7, 1972

Dent Acree, Atlanta, Ga., for Atlanta Transit System.

John W. Stokes, Jr., U. S. Atty., Beverly Bates, Asst. U. S. Atty., R. Beverly Irwin, Atlanta, Ga., for Mary Usher.

Cullen M. Ward, Frank M. Eldridge, Atlanta, Ga., for Mrs. Bowden and Miss Jones and others.

Before THORNBERRY, COLEMAN and INGRAHAM, Circuit Judges.


It appears from the record in this case that the United States has dismissed its appeal, that Atlanta Transit System, Inc., has suffered no legal consequences from the judgment below as it has been given full credit for the amount it has paid pursuant to a previous state court judgment between it and the plaintiff-appellee, and that there now remains no actual controversy between and among the parties. This appeal is dismissed as moot.

Appeal dismissed.
