IN RE: ALTON D. BROWN, Petitioner
Alton D. Brown filed a petition for writ of mandamus requesting that we direct the District Court to rule on a request for an opportunity to appeal the District Court's dismissal order in Brown v. Lancaster, M.D. Pa. Civ. No. 3:14-cv-01180. The District Court has since ruled on Brown's filing. In light of the District Court's action, the question Brown presented is no longer a live controversy, so we will dismiss his mandamus petition as moot. See, e.g., Lusardi v. Xerox Corp., 975 F.2d 964, 974 (3d Cir. 1992).
