MEMORANDUM OPINION ON PETITION FOR WRIT OF MANDAMUS


This is an original proceeding in mandamus. Ronald L. Bissell, relator, filed a petition for mandamus relief seeking to require the Honorable Dean Rucker, Sitting by Assignment for the 383rd District Court of El Paso County, to vacate an order denying a motion to compel and motion for in camera review. Relator has since filed a motion to dismiss the mandamus petition because the issues presented by the mandamus have been rendered moot by additional proceedings in the trial court. Accordingly, we grant relator's motion and dismiss the mandamus petition as moot.
