Raymond Edward Chestnut, Appellant Pro Se. Robert Frank Daley, Jr., Assistant United States Attorney, Columbia, South Carolina; Arthur Bradley Parham, Assistant United States Attorney, Florence, South Carolina, for Appellee. Unpublished opinions are not binding precedent in this circuit. Appeal: 17-6078 Doc: 10 Filed: 05/11/2017 Pg: 2 of 2 PER CURIAM: Raymond Edward Chestnut appeals the district court’s January 9, 2017 text order continuing to hold Chestnut’s 18 U.S.C. § 3582(c)(2) (2012) and 28 U.S.C. § 2255 (2012) motions in abeyance pending a decision in Beckles v. United States, 137 S. Ct. 886 (2017). After Chestnut filed his notice of appeal, the Supreme Court issued its decision in Beckles, and the district court entered an order denying relief on the § 3582(c)(2) motion and dismissing the § 2255 motions. Accordingly, we deny Chestnut’s motion for bail or release pending appeal and dismiss the appeal as moot. 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. DISMISSED 2
