850 F.2d 688
In re Amos BROWN, a/k/a Nabb Ali, Petitioner.
United States Court of Appeals, Fourth Circuit.
Submitted: April 26, 1988.
Decided: June 23, 1988.
Amos Brown, petitioner pro se.
Before JAMES DICKSON PHILLIPS, SPROUSE and WILKINSON, Circuit Judges.
Complaining of delay, Amos Brown has petitioned this Court for a writ of mandamus compelling the district court to act upon his motion to vacate sentence, brought pursuant to 28 U.S.C. Sec. 2255; Brown has also applied for leave to proceed in forma pauperis on his petition. Subsequent to Brown's filing his petition and application in this Court, the district court entered a final order denying his motion to vacate sentence. Brown v. United States, C/A No. HM-87-421 (D.Md. Apr. 13, 1988). Thus, Brown's petition for a writ of mandamus is moot and will be denied.
Accordingly, although leave to proceed in forma pauperis is granted, the petition for a writ of mandamus is denied as being moot and this action is dismissed.
