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.


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,


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