U.S. DISTRICT COURT
N.D. OF ALABAMA
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF ALABAMA
Case No. 7:16-cv-00807-VEH-TMP
The above-styled action for habeas corpus relief was filed by the petitioner,
Novella Beard, pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2241. On July 18, 2017, the respondent
filed a motion to dismiss the petition as moot, asserting that the petitioner had been
released from custody. (Doc. 9). On July 19, 2017, the magistrate judge issued an
Order To Show Cause, allowing the petitioner twenty days to show why her
petition should not be dismissed for want of prosecution or for mootness. (Doc.
11). More than twenty days have elapsed, and the petitioner has not responded to
the Order To Show Cause or otherwise contacted the court. Accordingly, this
petition for habeas corpus relief, filed under 28 U.S.C. § 2241, is due to be
DISMISSED WITHOUT PREJUDICE. An Order of Final Judgment shall be
entered contemporaneously herewith.
DONE this 9th day of August, 2017.
VIRGINIA EMERSON HOPKINS
