UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
DISTRICT OF MASSACHUSETTS
CIVIL ACTION NO. 17-11707-GAO
CHARLES C. COOPER,
January 11, 2018
On August 30, 2017, immigration detainee Charles C. Cooper filed a “Motion for Release on
Supervision,” which the Court construed as a Petition for a Writ of Habeas Corpus under 28 U.S.C.
§ 2241. The petitioner represented that he had been in post-removal detention since January 13,
2017, and sought immediate release. See Zadvydas v. Davis, 533 U.S. 678, 701 (2001). On
December 13, 2017, the respondent filed a notice and supporting declaration informing the Court that
the petitioner had been removed from the United States on November 28, 2017. Consequently, the
petition is DENIED as MOOT and the action is DISMISSED.
It is SO ORDERED.
