PER CURIAM:


Petitioners sought by mandamus to prevent the District Court from enforcing its order of July 12, 1973, which prohibited persons not parties to the case from making public statements during the pendency of the trial. The case has been fully tried resulting in judgments of acquittal and we therefore dismiss the request for relief as moot.1
