In Re Edward A. Ganey, Jr., Petitioner, 902 F.2d 28 (4th Cir. 1990)

Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit - 902 F.2d 28 (4th Cir. 1990)

Submitted April 2, 1990. Decided April 16, 1990

On Petition for Writ of Mandamus.

Edward A. Ganey, Jr., petitioner pro se.

875 F.2d 314, 867 F.2d 608.


Before ERVIN, Chief Judge, and PHILLIPS and CHAPMAN, Circuit Judges.


Edward A Ganey, a North Carolina prisoner, brought this petition for writ of mandamus alleging that the district court had unduly delayed in acting on one of his 42 U.S.C. § 1983 actions. Rhodes v. Outlaw, CA No. 88-539-CRT-H (E.D.N.C. Aug. 16, 1989). Because the district court dismissed Ganey's action, the petition for writ of mandamus is moot. Therefore, although we grant leave to proceed in forma pauperis, we deny the petition. We dispense with oral argument because the facts and legal contentions are adequately presented in the materials before the Court and argument would not significantly aid in the decisional process.
