In Re Clyde Stanley, Petitioner, 56 F.3d 62 (4th Cir. 1995)

Annotate this Case
U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit - 56 F.3d 62 (4th Cir. 1995) Submitted April 20, 1995. Decided May 31, 1995

Clyde Stanley, petitioner pro se.

Before WIDENER, WILKINSON, and WILKINS, Circuit Judges.


Clyde Stanley filed in this Court a "Motion for Injunctive Relief," which we have construed as a petition for a writ of mandamus, in which he alleges that the district court has unreasonably delayed acting upon his 28 U.S.C. § 2254 (1988) petition. The district court's docket sheet reveals that two dispositive motions have been filed within ninety days of the date of this petition. Therefore, we find there has been no undue delay by the district court in acting upon Stanley's habeas petition. 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 aid the decisional process.
