YOUNG v. UNITED STATES DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE et al
MEMORANDUM OPINION accompanying final order issued separately this day. Signed by Judge Reggie B. Walton on 11/8/13.(ah)
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA
ARNOLD N. YOUNG,
Civil Action No. 13-0431 (RBW)
DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE et al.,
This matter is before the Court on the Federal Respondents’ Opposition to Petitioner’s
Petition for a Writ of Habeas Corpus (“Gov’t’s Opp’n”), ECF No. 8. By Order issued on June
27, 2013, ECF No. 9, the petitioner was advised to reply to the government’s opposition by July
29, 2013, or risk summary denial of the petition and dismissal of the case. The petitioner has
neither filed a response nor sought additional time to do so. The Court therefore will dismiss the
case on the respondents’ uncontested arguments documenting to the Court’s satisfaction why the
writ should not issue. See Gov’t’s Opp’n at 3-9; 28 U.S.C. § 2248 (2006) (“The allegations of . .
. an answer to an order to show cause in a habeas corpus proceeding, if not traversed, shall be
accepted as true except to the extent that the judge finds from the evidence that they are not
true.”); see also Local Civil Rule 7(b) (unopposed dispositive motion may be treated as
conceded); Slovinec v. Amer. Univ., 520 F. Supp. 2d 107, 111 (D.D.C. 2007) (treating
uncontested arguments in a dispositive motion as conceded). 1
DATE: November 8, 2013
