In Re Ralston Purina Company, 873 F.2d 1450 (Fed. Cir. 1988)

Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit - 873 F.2d 1450 (Fed. Cir. 1988) Dec. 2, 1988

Before MAYER, Circuit Judge.


ORDER

Ralston Purina Company (Ralston) submitted a petition for writ of mandamus to direct the United States District Court for the Northern District of Illinois to vacate a magistrate's May 23, 1988 order, adopted by the district court on November 8, 1988. Those orders direct Ralston to produce twenty-two documents for which it claims attorney-client privilege. Ralston now informs the court that the documents were produced on November 23, 1988. Accordingly, we deem Ralston's petition to be moot.

Upon consideration thereof,

IT IS ORDERED THAT:

Ralston's petition for a writ of mandamus is dismissed as moot.
