United States Court of Appeals, Fourth Circuit.

IN RE: DAVID MICHAEL PERSONS, Petitioner.

No. 16-1440

    Decided: October 03, 2016

Before SHEDD, KEENAN, and HARRIS, Circuit Judges.David Michael Persons, Petitioner Pro Se.

David Michael Persons petitions for a writ of mandamus, alleging that the district court has unduly delayed in ruling on his 28 U.S.C. ยง 2255 (2012) motion. He seeks an order from this court directing the district court to act. We find the present record does not reveal undue delay in the district court. Accordingly, we grant leave to proceed in forma pauperis and deny the mandamus petition without prejudice to Persons' right to file another petition if the district court does not act expeditiously on his pending motion. 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
