Watson v. Holder et al
MEMORANDUM OPINION Signed by Judge William M Acker, Jr on 11/5/13. (SAC )
2013 Nov-05 AM 11:28
U.S. DISTRICT COURT
N.D. OF ALABAMA
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF ALABAMA
EDWIN JUNIOR WATSON,
ERIC HOLDER, et al.,
Case No.: 4:12-cv-02709-WMA-JEO
This case is before the court on Respondents’ Motion to Dismiss as Moot (doc. 14), filed
November 1, 2013. In their motion, Respondents note that Petitioner was removed from the
United States on October 31, 2013. (Doc. 10-1). Because Petitioner has been removed, the court
can no longer provide him with meaningful relief. Thus, the court finds that the petition for writ
of habeas corpus is moot. See Nyaga v. Ashcroft, 323 F.3d 906, 913 (11th Cir. 2003).
Accordingly, Respondents’ motion to dismiss as is due to be granted and the petition is due to be
dismissed without prejudice. A separate Order will be entered.
DONE this 5th day of November, 2013.
WILLIAM M. ACKER, JR.
UNITED STATES DISTRICT JUDGE
