James v. Smith
MEMORANDUM OPINION Signed by Chief Judge Karon O Bowdre on 6/6/16. (SAC )
2016 Jun-06 AM 10:28
U.S. DISTRICT COURT
N.D. OF ALABAMA
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF ALABAMA
KADARKO MADVEKE JAMES,
Case No.: 4:15-cv-01503-KOB-SGC
On May 20, 2016, the magistrate judge entered a report (Doc. 15) recommending the petition
for writ of habeas corpus pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2241 filed by the petitioner, Kadarko Madveke
James, be dismissed for want of jurisdiction. The report and recommendation was subsequently
returned by the U.S. Postal Service as undeliverable. (Doc. 17). A search of the Board of Immigration
and Custom Enforcement's online detainee location system reveals Petitioner is no longer in ICE
custody. Additionally, ICE officials have informed court personnel that Petitioner has been deported
to Trinidad and Tobago, his native country. Accordingly, to the extent the court could have jurisdiction
to consider any of Petitioner's claims under § 2241, those claims are now moot. Furthermore, to the
extent Petitioner might disagree with the magistrate judge's report and recommendation, it is
exceedingly unlikely that Petitioner will file objections following his deportation.
After careful consideration of the record in this case and the magistrate judge’s report, the court
hereby ADOPTS the report of the magistrate judge and ACCEPTS her recommendations.
Accordingly, the court finds the petition is due to be dismissed for want of jurisdiction.
A separate order will be entered.
DONE and ORDERED this 6th day of June, 2016.
KARON OWEN BOWDRE
CHIEF UNITED STATES DISTRICT JUDGE
