Tharp, Petitioner Pro Se. Unpublished opinions are not binding precedent in this circuit. PER CURIAM: Tracey C. Tharp petitions for a writ of mandamus seeking an order compelling the Bureau of Prisons to let her finish her prison sentence in home confinement. Mandamus relief is available only when the petitioner has a clear right to the relief sought. Loan Ass'n, is 860 a F.2d drastic 135, 138 (4th and In re First Fed. Sav. & Cir. 1988). only be Further, used in mandamus remedy should extraordinary circumstances. Kerr v. United States Dist. Court, 426 U.S. 394, 402 (1976); In re Beard, 811 F.2d 818, 826 (4th Cir. 1987). Tharp has not demonstrated that she has a clear right to the relief sought, nor has she demonstrated that the district court has a duty to grant that relief. Accordingly, although we grant leave to proceed in forma pauperis, we deny the petition for writ of mandamus. We dispense with oral argument because the facts and legal contentions are adequately presented in the materials before the court and argument would not aid the decisional process. PETITION DENIED 2
