PER CURIAM:  In this workers' compensation case, Raymond Johnson appeals the circuit court's order reversing the decision of the Appellate Panel of the Workers' Compensation Commission in part.  We dismiss this appeal[1] pursuant to Rule 220(b)(1), SCACR, and the following authorities: Curtis v. State, 345 S.C. 557, 567, 549 S.E.2d 591, 596 (2001) ("An appellate court will not pass on moot and academic questions or make an adjudication where there remains no actual controversy."); Byrd v. Irmo High Sch., 321 S.C. 426, 431, 468 S.E.2d 861, 864 (1996) (quoting Mathis v. S.C. State Highway Dep't, 260 S.C. 344, 346, 195 S.E.2d 713, 715 (1973)) ("Mootness has been defined as follows: 'A case becomes moot when judgment, if rendered, will have no practical legal effect upon existing controversy.  This is true when some event occurs making it impossible for the reviewing Court to grant effectual relief.'"); Gainey v. Gainey, 279 S.C. 68, 69, 301 S.E.2d 763, 764 (1983) ("This Court will not issue advisory opinions on questions for which no meaningful relief can be granted.").

APPEAL DISMISSED.
