UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA Aaron Gibson, Petitioner, v. Parole Commission, Respondent. : : : : : : : : Civil Action No. 16-0219 (CKK) MEMORANDUM OPINION In February 2016, petitioner filed this action for a writ of habeas corpus while detained at the District of Columbia Jail on a parole violator warrant issued by the United States Parole Commission (“USPC”). Petitioner claims that the warrant was executed on January 6, 2016, but the Commission had yet to hold a hearing, in violation of the due process clause. See Pet. for a Writ of Habeas Corpus at 5. In response to the Court’s show cause order, the government contends that the petition is moot because petitioner is serving a sentence for a Virginia state conviction “and is no longer in custody pursuant to the USPC parole violator warrant.” United States’ Resp. at 1 [Dkt. # 7]. Indeed, the docket shows that petitioner was released from the D.C. Jail on March 17, 2016, and the court’s subsequent mailings have been returned undelivered. See Dkt. ## 4, 11, 12. In addition, petitioner has not complied with the Court’s May 2, 2016 Order--mailed to both the D.C. Jail and a detention center in Winchester, Virginia--by verifying his current address by May 24, 2016, and replying to the government’s response by June 3, 2016. Based on the 1 government’s documented response, then, this habeas action will be dismissed as moot. A separate order accompanies this memorandum. DATE: June 30, 2016 ___________s/_______________ COLLEEN KOLLAR-KOTELLY United States District Judge 2
