THE HONORABLE STEVEN ALM, JUDGE OF THE CIRCUIT COURT OF THE FIRST CIRCUIT, STATE OF HAWAI'I, Respondent Judge, and STATE OF HAWAI'I, Respondent.
ORIGINAL PROCEEDING CR. NO. 03-1-0048; S.P.P. NO. 07-1-0050
Recktenwald, C.J., Nakayama, McKenna, Pollack, and Wilson, JJ.
Upon consideration of Petitioner John T. Orso's petition for a writ of mandamus, the answers filed by Respondent State of Hawai'i and Respondent Judge, the respective supporting documents, and the record, it appears that, on April 21, 2015, the circuit court disposed of the pending motion for reconsideration pursuant to the "Findings of Fact, Conclusions of Law, and Order Granting State's Motion for Reconsideration in Light of New Case Law and Denying Petition for Post Conviction Relief Without a Hearing." Petitioner's request for mandamus relief is therefore moot. Accordingly, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that the petition for a writ of mandamus is denied as moot.
