Per Curiam: Petitioner filed this petition for a writ of mandamus seeking to have this court direct the district court to act on his motion filed pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2255 (1988). The district court has last acted in the § 2255 proceeding on September 8, 1995. Because the district court has acted within six months of the filing of the petition, we find no unreasonable delay. Therefore, while we grant leave to proceed in forma pauperis, we deny the petition. We dispense with oral argument because the facts and legal contentions are adequately presented in the materials before the court and argument would not aid the decisional process.
