UNPUBLISHED UNITED STATES COURT OF APPEALS FOR THE FOURTH CIRCUIT No. 14-2134 In re: WILLIAM H. EVANS, JR., Petitioner. On Petition for Writ of Mandamus. (1:14-cv-01015-AJT-IDD) Submitted: December 16, 2014 Before DUNCAN Circuit Judge. and DIAZ, Circuit Decided: Judges, December 18, 2014 and DAVIS, Senior Petition denied by unpublished per curiam opinion. William H. Evans, Jr., Petitioner Pro Se. Unpublished opinions are not binding precedent in this circuit. PER CURIAM: William H. Evans, Jr., petitions for a writ of mandamus, alleging that the district court has unduly delayed in ruling on his 28 U.S.C. ยง 2241 (2012) petition. He seeks an order from this court directing the district court to act. We find that the present record does not reveal undue delay in the district court. Accordingly, we grant leave to proceed in forma pauperis and deny the mandamus petition. 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
