In United States v. Munsingwear, Inc., 340 U.S. 36 (1950), the U.S. Supreme Court dismissed an appeal for mootness.

This is the classic precedent for dismissal of cases on appeal when the controversy is rendered moot, as when a party dies. See, e.g., Claiborne v. United States, 127 S. Ct. 2245 (2007).
