Concepcion v. Hassell et al
MEMORANDUM OPINION. Signed by Judge L Scott Coogler on 6/15/2015. (PSM)
2015 Jun-15 AM 10:09
U.S. DISTRICT COURT
N.D. OF ALABAMA
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF ALABAMA
SCOTT HASSELL et al.,
Case No. 4:15-cv-00479-LSC-JEO
On March 23, 2015, the Petitioner, a citizen of the Dominican Republic, filed the instant
petition for a writ of habeas corpus pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2241, challenging his continued
detention at the Etowah County Detention Center. (Doc. 1). The case is now before the court on
the Respondents’ motion to dismiss the petition as moot. (Doc. 6). In their motion, the
Respondents note that the Petitioner has been deported from the United States.
Because the Petitioner has been deported, there is no longer any relief that can be
provided to him and his petition 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. Khader v. Holder, 843 F. Supp. 2d
1202 (N.D. Ala. 2011). A separate order will be entered.
Done this 15th day of June, 2015.
