Choup v. Nielsen et al
MEMORANDUM OPINION. Signed by Judge Virginia Emerson Hopkins on 1/9/2018. (JLC)
2018 Jan-09 PM 04:07
U.S. DISTRICT COURT
N.D. OF ALABAMA
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF ALABAMA
KIRSTJEN NIELSON, et al.,
Case No.: 4:17-cv-01971-VEH-SGC
This case is before the court on Respondents’ Motion to Dismiss as Moot, filed
December 20, 2017. (Doc. 5). In the motion, Respondents note Petitioner was
removed from the United States on December 19, 2017. (Id.; see Doc. 5-1). 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, Respondents’ motion
to dismiss is due to be granted, and the petition is due to be dismissed.
A separate order will be entered.
ORDERED this 9th day of January, 2018.
VIRGINIA EMERSON HOPKINS
United States District Judge
