Halse v. Hassel
MEMORANDUM OPINION. Signed by Judge R David Proctor on 2/14/2014. (AVC)
2014 Feb-14 PM 01:12
U.S. DISTRICT COURT
N.D. OF ALABAMA
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF ALABAMA
RENFORD ORVIL HALSE,
ERIC H. HOLDER, United States Attorney
General, et al.,
This is an action seeking a writ of habeas corpus filed pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2241, in which
Petitioner, acting pro se, has sought to challenge his continued detention pending removal pursuant
to the Immigration and Nationality Act. See generally Zadvydas v. Davis, 533 U.S. 678 (2001). The
cause comes to be heard on Respondents’ motion to dismiss the case as moot. (Doc. 19). The court
concludes that the motion is due to be granted.
In support of their motion, Respondents have filed a copy of a declaration made pursuant to
28 U.S.C. § 1746 by a Supervisory Detention and Deportation Officer of the U.S. Immigration and
Customs Enforcement facility at Gadsden, Alabama. (Doc. 19-1). In that declaration it is shown that
Petitioner was removed from the United States to Jamaica on February 12, 2014. (Id.). 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). Accordingly, this matter is due to be dismissed as
moot. A separate final order will be entered.
DONE and ORDERED this
day of February, 2014.
R. DAVID PROCTOR
UNITED STATES DISTRICT JUDGE
