UNPUBLISHED UNITED STATES COURT OF APPEALS FOR THE FOURTH CIRCUIT No. 13-1843 In Re: IRIS F. ALLEN, Petitioner. On Petition for Writ of Mandamus. (3:09-cr-00355-HEH-1) Submitted: October 30, 2013 Decided: November 21, 2013 Before MOTZ, DIAZ, and FLOYD, Circuit Judges. Petition denied by unpublished per curiam opinion. Iris F. Allen, Petitioner Pro Se. Unpublished opinions are not binding precedent in this circuit. PER CURIAM: Iris F. Allen petitions this court for a writ mandamus, alleging that the district court unduly delayed acting on her 28 U.S.C.A. § 2255 (West Supp. 2013) motion to vacate. She seeks an order from this court directing the district court to act. Because the district court entered an order denying Allen s § 2255 motion on August 28, 2013, we deny the mandamus petition as moot. pauperis. legal before We grant Allen leave to proceed in forma We dispense with oral argument because the facts and contentions this court are adequately and argument presented would not in aid the the materials decisional process. PETITION DENIED Issues raised in Allen s Addendum, filed after the August 28 decision, are more properly considered on direct appeal. We note that Allen s direct appeal, pending in this court as No. 13-7607, is not yet ripe for disposition. 2
