In Re William Earl Carrow, Petitioner, 937 F.2d 602 (4th Cir. 1991)

Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit - 937 F.2d 602 (4th Cir. 1991) Submitted June 25, 1991. Decided July 12, 1991

On Petition for Writ of Mandamus. (CR-76-370-HM, CA-87-2561)

William Earl Carrow, petitioner pro se.


Before WIDENER and NIEMEYER, Circuit Judges, and BUTZNER, Senior Circuit Judge.



William Earl Carrow filed this petition for a writ of mandamus seeking an order directing the district court to expedite the disposition of his 28 U.S.C. § 2255 motion. Shortly before this petition was filed the district court granted in part and denied in part his Sec. 2255 motion. His petition is therefore moot. Accordingly, we grant leave 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 aid the decisional process.
