JORDAN v. SINGLETARY

Reset A A Font size: Print

District Court of Appeal of Florida,First District.

Paul Edgar JORDAN, Petitioner, v. Harry K. SINGLETARY, Jr., Secretary, Florida Department of Corrections, Respondent.

No. 98-4697

Decided: January 29, 1999

Paul Edgar Jordan, pro se, petitioner. No appearance for respondent.

Pursuant to Florida Rule of Appellate Procedure 9.140(j), Paul Edgar Jordan petitions this court for a belated appeal of an April 1998 order of the circuit court denying his petition for writ of mandamus.   Because this order was entered in a civil proceeding, rule 9.140(j) is inapplicable, and we therefore deny the petition.   This disposition is without prejudice to Jordan's right to seek relief in the circuit court by motion pursuant to Florida Rule of Civil Procedure 1.540.   See Brown v. State, 708 So.2d 1041 (Fla. 1st DCA 1998).

PER CURIAM.

BOOTH, LAWRENCE and DAVIS, JJ., concur.
