UNPUBLISHED UNITED STATES COURT OF APPEALS FOR THE FOURTH CIRCUIT No. 18-6153 CHAD S. WILLIAMS, Petitioner - Appellant, v. J. C. HOLLAND, Respondent - Appellee. Appeal from the United States District Court for the Eastern District of North Carolina, at Raleigh. W. Earl Britt, Senior District Judge. (5:16-hc-02274-BR) Submitted: August 23, 2018 Decided: August 27, 2018 Before DUNCAN and FLOYD, Circuit Judges, and HAMILTON, Senior Circuit Judge. Dismissed by unpublished per curiam opinion. Chad S. Williams, Appellant Pro Se. Unpublished opinions are not binding precedent in this circuit. PER CURIAM: Chad S. Williams appeals the district court’s order dismissing without prejudice his 28 U.S.C. § 2241 (2012) petition. At the time Williams noted his appeal, he was awaiting sentencing in the district court for the Western District of New York. According to the district court’s docket sheet, Williams has been sentenced to time served and released from custody. Because Williams is no longer in federal custody, we dismiss his appeal as moot. We deny Williams’ motions for leave to proceed in forma pauperis and for default judgment, and 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. DISMISSED 2
