On June 9, 2014, this 28 U.S.C.
petition for habeas corpus was received for filing
from Tavon Washington ("Washington"). At the time he filed his action, Washington was detained

in light of the April 4, 2014 issuance of a parole retake warrant. ECF No.1.

The respondents have filed a motion to dismiss, which remains unopposed as of the within
signature date. ECF NO.5. A hearing is deemed unnecessary. For reasons to follow the motion to
dismiss shall be granted and the case shall be dismissed without prejudice.
There is no dispute that on June 17, 2014, the Maryland Parole Commission recalled the
retake warrant and on June 18, 2014, Washington was released from the Division of Correction to a
detainer in Prince George's County, Maryland. Id., Exs. A & B. Inasmuch as Washington has
received the habeas relief he sought and has not provided the court his current address in compliance
with Local Rule 102.1.b.iii (D. Md. 2014), the petition is subject to dismissal.
For the foregoing reasons, Washington's petition shall be dismissed without prejudice.
