UNITED STATES COURT OF APPEALS
FOR THE FOURTH CIRCUIT

On Petition for Writ of Mandamus
Submitted: July 27, 2017
Decided: July 31, 2017

Unpublished opinions are not binding precedent in this circuit.
Pg: 2 of 2
Larry D. Hill, Jr., petitions for a writ of mandamus, alleging that the district court
has unduly delayed acting on his Fed. R. Civ. P. 60(d) motion filed on April 17, 2017.
However, Hill did not file a Rule 60(d) motion on April 17, 2017, and the district court
has since dismissed Hill’s Rule 60(d) motion filed on May 8, 2017. Additionally, insofar
as Hill claims in his petition that newly discovered evidence proves he is actually
innocent of his convictions, there are “other adequate means” for Hill to attain the relief
sought. See In re Braxton, 258 F.3d 250, 261 (4th Cir. 2001). Accordingly, we grant Hill
leave to proceed in forma pauperis and deny the petition.
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.
