In Re Nathan A. Thorne, Petitioner, 836 F.2d 547 (4th Cir. 1987)

Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit - 836 F.2d 547 (4th Cir. 1987) Submitted Nov. 27, 1987. Decided Dec. 15, 1987

Nathan A. Thorne, petitioner pro se.

Before WIDENER and JAMES DICKSON PHILLIPS, Circuit Judges, and BUTZNER, Senior Circuit Judge.


Petitioner Nathan A. Thorne has applied to this Court for a writ of mandamus directing the district court to act on his 42 U.S.C. § 1983 suit.

The district court has now entered a judgment dismissing his suit. Thorne v. Bynum, C/A No. 86-570-N (E.D. Va. June 18, 1987).

Accordingly, although we grant leave to proceed in forma pauperis, the petition for writ of mandamus is dismissed as moot.
