MEMORANDUM OPINION. Signed by Judge Madeline Hughes Haikala on 6/29/2016. (KEK)

U.S. DISTRICT COURT
N.D. OF ALABAMA
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF ALABAMA
SCOTT HASSELL, et al.
This is a habeas corpus case filed pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2241. The pro se petitioner
contends that he is being illegally detained by the respondents and that he should be released
from custody pending his removal under the Immigration and Nationality Act. (Doc. 1). See
generally Zadvydas v. Davis, 533 U.S. 678 (2001). The respondents have filed a motion to
dismiss this matter as moot. (Doc. 20). 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 13, 2016. (Doc. 20-1). 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 should be dismissed as moot. A separate final
order will be entered.
DONE and ENTERED this 29th day of June, 2016.
