Petitioner Lou Patton-Bey, an inmate at the United States Prison, Lompoc, California, has applied to this court for a writ of mandamus or prohibition directing the district court to act on his petition for post-conviction relief, filed pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2255.


The district court has now entered an order filed 28 November 1986 transferring Patton-Bey's petiton for post-conviction relief to the Central District of California in Patton-Bey v. U.S. Parole Commission, C/A No. JH-85-4950 (D.Md., November 28, 1986). Accordingly, although leave is granted to proceed in forma pauperis, the petition for a writ of mandamus or prohibition is denied as being moot and this action is dismissed.
