Alhassan v. Hassell et al
MEMORANDUM OPINION Signed by Chief Judge Karon O Bowdre on 6/23/17. (SAC )
2017 Jun-23 PM 02:16
U.S. DISTRICT COURT
N.D. OF ALABAMA
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF ALABAMA
SCOTT HASSELL, Warden, Etowah
County Jail, et al.,
CIVIL ACTION NO.
This is a habeas corpus action under 28 U.S.C. § 2241, filed by Petitioner Saibu
Alhassan, pro se. Petitioner challenges the legality of his continued detention by
federal immigration authorities pending his removal from the United States under the
Immigration and Nationality Act. (See Doc. 1). Respondents have moved to dismiss
the action as moot, on the ground that Petitioner has been removed from the United
States. (Doc. 9).
Respondents’ motion is supported by a declaration by a Supervisory Detention
and Deportation Officer who states that Petitioner was removed from the United
States on June 13, 2017. (Doc. 9-1). As a result, Petitioner’s habeas corpus claim for
release under an order of supervision or for repatriation is moot because the court can
no longer provide meaningful relief. See Nyaga v. Ashcroft, 323 F.3d 906, 913 (11th
Cir. 2003). Respondents’ motion is due to be granted and this action is due to be
dismissed. A separate Final Order will be entered.
DONE and ORDERED this 23rd day of June, 2017.
KARON OWEN BOWDRE
CHIEF UNITED STATES DISTRICT JUDGE
