Jalil v. Acuna et al
MEMORANDUM OPINION. Signed by Judge L Scott Coogler on 7/25/2017. (PSM)
2017 Jul-25 AM 10:08
U.S. DISTRICT COURT
N.D. OF ALABAMA
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF ALABAMA
MUAWIA KHALIL SAADAT ABDEL
TODD ENTREKIN, Sheriff, et al.,
Case No.: 4:17-cv-00403-LSC-SGC
This case is before the court on Respondents' Motion to Dismiss as Moot, filed July 19,
2017. (Doc. 16). In the motion, Respondents note Petitioner was released from ICE custody on
July 19, 2017, pursuant to an Order of Supervision. (Id.; see Doc. 16-1). Because Petitioner has
been released, Respondents contend this case is due to be dismissed as moot.
On March 15, 2017, Petitioner filed a petition for writ of habeas corpus seeking to be
released from custody pending his removal. (Doc. 1). Because Petitioner has been released on
an Order of Supervision, his petition seeking that very relief 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'"); see also Spencer v. Kemna, 523 U.S. 1, 7-8 (1998) (once a habeas
petitioner is released from custody, he must demonstrate collateral consequences to avoid
mootness doctrine). Accordingly, this matter is due to be dismissed. Khader v. Holder, 843 F.
Supp. 2d 1202, 1202 (N.D. Ala. 2011).
A separate order will be entered.
DONE and ORDERED on July 25, 2017.
