A petition for writ of mandamus to require the District Court to adopt a reapportionment plan for the Mississippi Legislature is denied, where after this Court granted leave to file the petition the District Court entered a final judgment specifying a plan for reapportionment, and the parties announced that there will be no appeal.

PER CURIAM.

On March 26, 1979, we granted leave to petitioners to file a petition for a writ of mandamus to require the United States District Court for the Southern District of Mississippi to adopt a plan for the reapportionment of the Mississippi Legislature. 440 U.S. 612 . The order granting leave recited that we continued for 30 days our consideration of the petition.

The Clerk of the District Court has now formally advised the Clerk of this Court that on April 13, 1979, the District Court entered a final judgment specifying a court-ordered plan for the reapportionment of the legislature and for elections to be conducted in the coming summer. The District Court Clerk has also stated that all parties to the litigation have announced in open court that there will be no appeal.

The petition for a writ of mandamus is therefore denied.

    So ordered.

MR. JUSTICE POWELL took no part in the decision on this petition.
