UNITED STATES COURT OF APPEALS
FOR THE FOURTH CIRCUIT
In re: MICHAEL S. GORBEY, a/k/a Michael S. Owlfeather-Gorbey,
On Petition for Writ of Mandamus. (7:16-cv-00372-NKM-RSB)
Submitted: March 30, 2017
Decided: April 3, 2017
Before TRAXLER and WYNN, Circuit Judges, and HAMILTON, Senior Circuit Judge.
Petition denied by unpublished per curiam opinion.
Michael S. Gorbey, Petitioner Pro Se.
Unpublished opinions are not binding precedent in this circuit.
Pg: 2 of 2
Michael S. Gorbey petitions for a writ of mandamus, alleging the district court has
unduly delayed acting on his 28 U.S.C. § 2241 (2012) petition. He seeks an order from
this court directing the district court to act. Our review of the district court’s docket
reveals that the district court entered an order on October 28, 2016, dismissing without
prejudice Gorbey’s § 2241 petition. Accordingly, because the district court has recently
decided Gorbey’s case, we deny the mandamus petition as moot. We grant leave to
proceed in forma pauperis. 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.
