Rushford v. Hassel
MEMORANDUM OPINION Signed by Chief Judge Karon O Bowdre on 1/31/17. (SAC )
2017 Jan-31 PM 02:40
U.S. DISTRICT COURT
N.D. OF ALABAMA
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF ALABAMA
Case No.: 4:16-cv-00477-KOB-SGC
This case is before the court on “Respondent’s Motion to Dismiss Petition as Moot,” filed
January 30, 2017. (Doc. 11). Respondent notes Petitioner was removed from the United States on
December 28, 2016. (Doc. 11-1 at 1). Because Petitioner has been removed, the court can no longer
provide meaningful relief. Thus, the court finds that the petition for writ of habeas corpus is moot.
See Nyaga v. Ashcroft, 323 F.3d 906, 913 (11th Cir. 2003). Accordingly, Respondent’s motion to
dismiss is due to be granted, and the petition is due to be dismissed.
A separate order will be entered.
DONE and ORDERED this 31st day of January, 2017.
KARON OWEN BOWDRE
CHIEF UNITED STATES DISTRICT JUDGE
