In Re Lou Patton-bey, Petitioner,, 810 F.2d 194 (4th Cir. 1987)

Annotate this Case
U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit - 810 F.2d 194 (4th Cir. 1987) Submitted Dec. 12, 1986. Decided Jan. 16, 1987

Before RUSSELL and WIDENER, Circuit Judges, and BUTZNER, Senior Circuit Judge.

Lou Patton-Bey, appellant pro se.


Petitioner Lou Patton-Bey, an inmate at the United States Prison, Lompoc, California, has applied to this court for a writ of mandamus or prohibition directing the district court to act on his petition for post-conviction relief, filed pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2255.

The district court has now entered an order filed 28 November 1986 transferring Patton-Bey's petiton for post-conviction relief to the Central District of California in Patton-Bey v. U.S. Parole Commission, C/A No. JH-85-4950 (D. Md., November 28, 1986). Accordingly, although leave is granted to proceed in forma pauperis, the petition for a writ of mandamus or prohibition is denied as being moot and this action is dismissed.
