UNPUBLISHED UNITED STATES COURT OF APPEALS FOR THE FOURTH CIRCUIT No. 14-1935 In re: MICHAEL ANTHONY HOY, a/k/a Chi-Town, Petitioner. On Petition for Writ of Mandamus (No. 1:11-cr-00253-TDS-8) Submitted: December 11, 2014 Decided: December 22, 2014 Before MOTZ, WYNN, and THACKER, Circuit Judges. Petition denied by unpublished per curiam opinion. Michael Anthony Hoy, Petitioner Pro Se. Unpublished opinions are not binding precedent in this circuit. PER CURIAM: Michael Anthony Hoy petitions for a writ of mandamus, alleging that the district court has unduly delayed in ruling on his 28 U.S.C. § 2255 (2012) motion. He seeks an order from this court directing the district court to act. Our review of the district court’s docket reveals that the district court adopted the magistrate judge’s recommendation and denied Hoy’s motion on November 26, 2014. Accordingly, because the district court has recently decided Hoy’s case, we deny the mandamus petition as moot. We grant leave to proceed in forma pauperis. We dispense with oral argument because the facts and legal contentions are adequately presented in the materials before this court and argument would not aid the decisional process. PETITION DENIED 2
