UNITED STATES COURT OF APPEALS
FOR THE FOURTH CIRCUIT
In re: GEORGE THOMAS POTTS, JR.,
On Petition for Writ of Mandamus
Submitted: May 25, 2017
Before MOTZ, THACKER, and HARRIS, Circuit Judges.
Petition denied by unpublished per curiam opinion.
George Thomas Potts, Jr., Petitioner Pro Se.
Unpublished opinions are not binding precedent in this circuit.
Decided: May 31, 2017
Pg: 2 of 2
George Thomas Potts, Jr., 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. Our review of the district
court’s docket reveals that the district court adopted the recommendation of the
magistrate judge and granted Potts’ § 2255 motion on April 26, 2017. Accordingly,
because the district court has recently ruled on Potts’ motion, 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.
