In Re Danny Myers, Petitioner, 955 F.2d 42 (4th Cir. 1992)

Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit - 955 F.2d 42 (4th Cir. 1992)

Submitted Feb. 3, 1992. Decided Feb. 21, 1992

On Petition for Writ of Mandamus.

Danny Myers, petitioner pro se.


Before WIDENER, HAMILTON and LUTTIG, Circuit Judges.



Danny Myers requests this Court to issue a writ of mandamus directing the district court to act on his pending "Motion for Release from Detention Pending Appeal," which he claims to have filed with the district court on September 17, 1991. Assuming the truth of Myers's assertions, we find that the district court's inaction does not constitute unreasonable delay and conclude that Myers has failed to establish sufficient grounds for granting the writ. Accordingly, we deny leave to proceed in forma pauperis and deny Myers's petition. We dispense with oral argument because the facts and legal contentions are adequately presented and argument would not aid the decisional process.
