UNITED STATES COURT OF APPEALS
FOR THE FOURTH CIRCUIT
In re: VIVEK SHAH,
On Petition for Writ of Mandamus
Submitted: October 19, 2017
Decided: October 23, 2017
Before NIEMEYER, MOTZ, and KING, Circuit Judges.
Petition denied by unpublished per curiam opinion.
Vivek Shah, Petitioner Pro Se.
Unpublished opinions are not binding precedent in this circuit.
Pg: 2 of 2
Vivek Shah petitions for a writ of mandamus, alleging that the district court has
unduly delayed ruling on his 28 U.S.C. § 2255 (2012) motion. He seeks an order from
this court directing the district court to act. The record reflects that the district court
issued an opinion and order addressing the merits of Shah’s § 2255 motion, and Shah has
therefore received the relief he requests in this petition. Accordingly, although we grant
leave to proceed in forma pauperis, we deny as moot Shah’s petition and supplemental
petitions 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 decisional process.
