In Re Leonard Archie Smith, Petitioner, 931 F.2d 55 (4th Cir. 1991)

Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit - 931 F.2d 55 (4th Cir. 1991) Submitted April 8, 1991. Decided April 26, 1991

On Petition for Writ of Mandamus.

Leonard Archie Smith, petitioner pro se.


Before MURNAHGAN, SPROUSE and NIEMEYER, Circuit Judges.


Leonard A. Smith has applied to this Court for a writ of mandamus directing the district court to act upon his civil rights action filed pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983.

The district court has now entered final judgment in the action and Smith has filed a notice of appeal to this Court. See Smith v. Bost, CA-89-559-3 (D.S.C. Mar. 11, 1991). Accordingly, although leave to proceed in forma pauperis is granted, the petition for writ of mandamus is denied as being moot, and this action is dismissed.
