In Re William D. Longenette, Petitioner, 12 F.3d 205 (4th Cir. 1993)

Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit - 12 F.3d 205 (4th Cir. 1993) Submitted Oct. 25, 1993. Decided Nov. 19, 1993

On Petition for Writ of Mandamus.

William D. Longenette, pro se.


Before ERVIN, Chief Judge, and PHILLIPS and WILKINSON, Circuit Judges.



William D. Longenette brought this mandamus petition seeking an order directing the district court to act on Longenette's "Notice and Motion to Compel Accurate Response to Inteerrogatory [sic], Per Civ.R. 33 and 37(a) (2)," currently pending in his 42 U.S.C. § 1983 (1988) action. The district court's last significant action in Longenette's Sec. 1983 action was in September 1993. Because there has not been undue delay in the district court, mandamus relief is not warranted. Accordingly, although we grant permission to proceed in forma pauperis, we deny the petition. 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.
