In Re Henry F. Warden, Jr., Petitioner, 933 F.2d 1002 (4th Cir. 1991)Annotate this Case
On Petition for Writ of Mandamus.
Henry F. Warden, Jr., petitioner pro se.
Before DONALD RUSSELL, WILKINSON and WILKINS, Circuit Judges.
Henry R. Warden, Jr. brought this mandamus petition seeking to have this Court order the district court to reverse its dismissal of his case and reconsider its ruling on his in forma pauperis application. Warden also seeks to require the district court to be more responsive to his questions and to institute different in forma pauperis procedures. Mandamus relief is inappropriate because Warden has not clearly and indisputably shown that he is entitled to relief. In re: Beard, 811 F.2d 818, 826 (4th Cir. 1987). Accordingly, we grant permission to proceed in forma pauperis and deny mandamus relief. 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.
