Attorneys 1:

Craig Beene, Whiteville, Tennessee, pro se.

Attorneys 2:

Herbert H. Slatery, III, Attorney General and Reporter; Andree S. Blumstein, Solicitor General; Dawn M. Jordan, Senior Deputy; and Mary M. Bers, Senior Counsel, Nashville, Tennessee, for the appellee, Dan M. Alsobrooks.

Judge(s): MCCLARTY

The petitioner sought a writ of mandamus to compel the district attorney general to furnish him with copies of records pertaining to his criminal case. The trial court dismissed the petition, finding that the district attorney general named in the petition had retired, that the statute did not require delivery of records to an incarcerated petitioner, and that the records had been provided in discovery and were no longer available to produce for inspection. The petitioner appeals. We affirm.
