In Re George Sassower, Petitioner, 917 F.2d 558 (4th Cir. 1990)

Annotate this Case
U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit - 917 F.2d 558 (4th Cir. 1990) Submitted Oct. 1, 1990. Decided Nov. 1, 1990

On Petition for Writ of Mandamus.

George Sassower, appellant pro se.


Before DONALD RUSSELL and PHILLIPS, Circuit Judges, and BUTZNER, Senior Circuit Judge.


George Sassower brought this petition for writ of mandamus seeking an order directing the district court to act promptly on his case; he also leveled criticism against the district court judges involved in the case and sought their recusal. The district court dismissed the case pending before it on September 20, 1990. Therefore, we deny Sassower's petition as moot. Although we grant leave to proceed in forma pauperis, 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.
