No. 91-6768 DISMISSED; No. 91-6778 AFFIRMED.

Before SPROUSE and WILKINS, Circuit Judges, and BUTZNER, Senior Circuit Judge.

PER CURIAM:


In No. 91-6778, Aaron Holsey appeals from the district court's order denying two motions for injunctive relief. Our review of the record and the district court's opinion discloses that the district court properly denied relief after applying the factors set forth in Blackwelder Furniture Co. v. Seilig Mfg. Co., 550 F.2d 189 (4th Cir. 1977), and the denial was not an abuse of discretion. See Westmoreland Coal Co. v. UMW, 910 F.2d 130 (4th Cir. 1990).

In No. 91-6768, Holsey seeks to appeal the district court's failure to decide his motions for default judgment. Such a matter is more properly raised in a petition for writ of mandamus. However, the record reflects that the motions have been denied. We therefore dismiss the appeal as moot.

We dispense with oral argument because the facts and legal contentions are adequately presented in the materials before the Court and argument would not aid the decisional process.

No. 91-6768, DISMISSED.

No. 91-6778, AFFIRMED.
