IN RE: HARVEY BRAMLETT, JR. AND JASON BLAKENEY, RELATORS
By this original proceeding, Relators, Harvey Bramlett, Jr., and Jason Blakeney, both inmates proceeding pro se and in forma pauperis, sought to compel the Honorable Douglas Woodburn, Judge of the 108th District Court of Potter County, to recuse himself from their suit against the Texas Department of Criminal Justice and certain named employees of the Department and to rule on a myriad of motions pending in the trial court. Now pending in this proceeding is Relators' Motion to Dismiss Mandamus 1 in which they represent that Judge Woodburn has issued a ruling in the underlying suit which they intend to appeal.
Pursuant to Rule 42.1(a)(1) of the Texas Rules of Appellate Procedure, we grant Relators' request and dismiss the petition for writ of mandamus. Having dismissed this proceeding at the request of Relators, no motion for rehearing will be entertained.
FN1. The motion to dismiss was filed on March 24, 2011. This Court invokes Rule 2 of the Texas Rules of Appellate Procedure to suspend the operation of Rule 10.3(a).. FN1.
