IN RE: Charles E. SMITH, Petitioner
Pro se petitioner Charles Smith has filed a petition for writ of mandamus requesting that we direct the United States District Court for the Middle District of Pennsylvania to rule on his 28 U.S.C. § 2241 petition. However, on March 23, 2018—months before Smith filed this mandamus petition—the District Court dismissed the § 2241 petition. Smith thus has not shown an “injury in fact” that will likely “be redressed by a favorable decision” from this Court, Lujan v. Defs. of Wildlife, 504 U.S. 555, 560–61, 112 S.Ct. 2130, 119 L.Ed.2d 351 (1992) (quotation marks omitted), and we will therefore dismiss his petition for lack of jurisdiction.1
1. Smith’s motions to proceed in forma pauperis and to be relieved from filing his prison-account statement are granted.
