Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit - 861 F.2d 263 (4th Cir. 1988) Submitted: Oct. 19, 1987. Decided: Oct. 11, 1988

Curtis E. Crawford, appellant pro se.

Richard M. Kastendieck (Office of the Attorney General of Maryland), for appellees.

Before WIDENER and ERVIN, Circuit Judges, and BUTZNER, Senior Circuit Judges.


Curtis E. Crawford appeals the district court's order accepting the magistrate's recommendation that his case be administratively closed until Crawford is released from custody. Crawford has since been released from prison, and the district court has granted his motion to reopen the case. We find that his appeal is now moot and must be dismissed. As the dispositive issues recently have been decided authoritatively, we dispense with oral argument.
