The decision of the Authority follows:


 11 FLRA No. 19
 
 PROFESSIONAL AIR TRAFFIC CONTROLLERS
 ORGANIZATION, AFL-CIO, LOCAL 710
 Respondent
 
 and
 
 RICHARD MORRIS
 Charging Party
 
                                            Case No. 8-CO-30
 
                ORDER GRANTING MOTION TO DISMISS COMPLAINT
 
    The above-entitled case is before the Federal Labor Relations
 Authority pursuant to section 7105(a)(2)(G) of the Federal Service
 Labor-Management Relations Statute (the Statute) after being transferred
 by the Regional Director's "Order Transferring Case to the Federal Labor
 Relations Authority" in accordance with section 2429.1(a) of the
 Authority's Rules and Regulations.  Thereafter, the General Counsel
 filed a motion to dismiss the complaint in view of the Authority's
 decision in Professional Air Traffic Controllers Organization,
 Affiliated with MEBA, AFL-CIO, 7 FLRA No. 10 (1981), affirmed sub nom.,
 Professional Air Traffic Controllers Organization v. Federal Labor
 Relations Authority, 685 F.2d 547 (D.C. Cir. 1982).
 
    In that decision, the Authority revoked the exclusive recognition
 status of the Respondent herein, PATCO, for having engaged in strike
 activity prohibited by section 7116(b)(7) of the Statute, and found that
 PATCO is no longer a labor organization within the meaning of the
 Statute.
 
    Upon careful consideration of the motion to dismiss filed by the
 General Counsel, it has been determined that this unfair labor practice
 case has been rendered moot.  Thus, due to Respondent's loss of status
 as an exclusive representative and as a labor organization under the
 Statute, any decision rendered herein cannot have any practical legal
 effect.
 
    Accordingly, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that the complaint in the
 above-entitled case be, and it hereby is, dismissed.  
 
 Issued, Washington, D.C., January 14, 1983
