O Sullivan v. Holder et al
MEMORANDUM OPINION. Signed by Judge R David Proctor on 5/27/2012. (AVC)
2012 May-24 PM 04:28
U.S. DISTRICT COURT
N.D. OF ALABAMA
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF ALABAMA
ERIC H. HOLDER, Attorney General of the
United States, et al.,
Case No.: 4:12-cv-0253-RDP-PWG
This is a habeas corpus case filed pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2241 by Kern O’Sullivan, pro se.
Petitioner contends that he is being illegally detained by Respondents and that he is due to be
released from custody pending his removal to Jamaica under the Immigration and Nationality Act.
(Doc. 1). Respondents have filed a motion to dismiss this matter as being moot. (Doc. 10).
In support of their motion to dismiss, Respondents have filed evidentiary materials showing
that Petitioner was released from custody under an order of supervision on May 16, 2012. (Doc. 101). Thus, 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 and ORDERED this
day of May, 2012.
R. DAVID PROCTOR
UNITED STATES DISTRICT JUDGE
