Civil Action Number
This is an action on a petition for a writ of habeas corpus filed pursuant to
28 U.S.C. § 2241 by Luah Talo (the “petitioner”), who contests his continued
detention by federal immigration authorities pending his removal to Liberia. Doc.
1. The respondents have filed a motion to dismiss this matter as being moot. Doc.
7. Upon consideration, the court finds that the respondents’ motion is due to be
granted and that the petition is due to be dismissed as moot.
In support of their motion to dismiss, the respondents have filed evidentiary
materials showing that the petitioner was released from custody under an order of
supervision on May 17, 2012. Doc. 7-1. Thus, the petitioner’s claim for release
under an order of supervision or for repatriation is moot. See Nyaga v. Ashcroft,
323 F.3d 906, 913 (11th Cir. 2003) (“[A] case must be dismissed as moot if the
court can no longer provide ‘meaningful relief.’”). Accordingly, this matter is due
to be dismissed as moot. A separate final order will be entered.
Done the 28th day of June, 2012.
