Pg: 2 of 2
Rickey G. Young appeals the district court’s order denying his motion for a
preliminary injunction or temporary restraining order.
See 28 U.S.C. § 1292(a)(1)
(2012). While this interlocutory appeal was pending, Young voluntarily dismissed his
civil action in the district court pursuant to Fed. R. Civ. P. 41(a)(1)(A)(i). We therefore
dismiss Young’s appeal as moot. See CVLR Performance Horses, Inc. v. Wynne, 792
F.3d 469, 474 (4th Cir. 2015) (“Litigation may become moot during the pendency of an
appeal when an intervening event makes it impossible for the court to grant effective
relief to the prevailing party.”).
We also deny as moot Young’s motion for
reconsideration of this court’s order denying injunctive relief pending appeal, and we
deny Young’s motion to expedite decision. 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.
