(Doc. No. 2.) Additionally, in accordance with Castro v. United States, 540 U.S. 375 (2003), the court notified Goodwin if its intention to treat his filing as such a motion, but that he had the option of dismissing his action if he did not wish to proceed under 28 U.S.C. § 2255. (Doc. No. 2 at p. 2.) In response to the court's Order, Goodwin has filed a document with this court indicating that he does not wish to file a § 2255 motion at this time and stating that he instead wishes to withdraw his earlier filing. (Doc. No. 3; filed Feb. 2, 2009.) This court construes Goodwin's response as a motion to withdraw his filing of January 14, 2009. Upon consideration of the instant motion, and for good cause, it is hereby ORDERED
that: 1. Goodwin's motion to withdraw his filing of January 14, 2009, is GRANTED; and 2. This action is DISMISSED without prejudice.
DONE this 4th day of February, 2009.
