Before DUNCAN and KEENAN, Circuit Judges, and HAMILTON, Senior Circuit Judge.
Dalton Laquane Smith, Petitioner Pro Se.
Dalton Laquane Smith petitions for a writ of mandamus, alleging that the district court has unduly delayed ruling on his 28 U.S.C. § 2255 (2012) motion. He seeks an order from this court directing the district court to act. The record reflects that the district court issued an opinion and order addressing the merits of Smith’s § 2255 motion, and Smith has therefore received the relief he requests in this petition. Accordingly, although we grant leave to proceed in forma pauperis, we deny as moot Smith’s petition for a writ of mandamus. 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.
Petition denied by unpublished per curiam opinion.
Unpublished opinions are not binding precedent in this circuit.
