Vivek Shah, petitioner pro se.
Unpublished opinions are not binding precedent in this circuit.
Decided: June 22, 2017
Pg: 2 of 2
Vivek Shah petitions for a writ of mandamus, alleging that the district court has
unduly delayed in ruling on his 28 U.S.C. § 2255 (2012) motion. He seeks an order from
this court directing the district court to act. We conclude that the present record does not
reveal undue delay in the district court. Accordingly, although we grant leave to proceed
in forma pauperis, we deny Shah’s petition and supplemental petition for a writ of
mandamus. 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
