MEMORANDUM OPINION. Signed by Judge Madeline Hughes Haikala on 10/16/2017. (KEK)

U.S. DISTRICT COURT
N.D. OF ALABAMA
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF ALABAMA
ELAINE DUKE, acting Secretary of U.S.
Department of Homeland Security, et al.,
CIVIL ACTION NO.
Pro se petitioner Mahmoud Karami filed this 28 U.S.C. § 2241 habeas corpus
action on August 16, 2017. (Doc. 1). Mr. Karami challenges the legality of his continued
detention by federal immigration authorities pending his removal from the United States
under the Immigration and Nationality Act, 8 U.S.C. § 1101 et seq. See generally
Zadvydas v. Davis, 533 U.S. 678 (2001). The respondents filed a motion to dismiss this
action as moot. (Doc. 4).
Mr. Karami was released from ICE custody under an order of supervision on
September 6, 2017. (Doc. 4-1, pp. 1-3). Therefore, Mr. Karami’s habeas corpus claim
for release under an order of supervision or for repatriation is moot because the Court no
longer can provide meaningful relief. See Nyaga v. Ashcroft, 323 F.3d 906, 913 (11th
Cir. 2003); Soliman v. United States ex rel. INS, 296 F.3d 1237, 1242-43 (11th Cir.
The Court will grant the respondents’ motion and dismiss this action by separate
DONE, this 16th day of October, 2017.
