Ojuma v. Lynch
MEMORANDUM OPINION Signed by Chief Judge Karon O Bowdre on 4/29/16. (SAC )
2016 Apr-29 PM 01:56
U.S. DISTRICT COURT
N.D. OF ALABAMA
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF ALABAMA
LORETTA LYNCH, Attorney General
of the United States of America,
CIVIL ACTION NO.
Henry Ojuma, acting pro se, filed his habeas corpus action under 28 U.S.C. §
2241 alleging that ICE was unlawfully detaining him at the Etowah County Detention
Center in Gadsden, Alabama, pending his removal from the United States pursuant to
the Immigration and Nationality Act. (Doc. 1). The respondent filed a motion to
dismiss this matter as moot. (Doc. 12). Upon consideration, the court finds that the
respondent’s motion is due to be granted.
In support of her motion to dismiss, the respondent filed evidentiary materials
showing that the petitioner was released from custody under order of supervision on
March 23, 2016. (Doc. 12-1). 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, the court finds that this matter is due to be
dismissed as moot.
The court will enter a separate Final Order.
DONE and ORDERED this 29th day of April, 2016.
KARON OWEN BOWDRE
CHIEF UNITED STATES DISTRICT JUDGE
