Gordon v. Lee
ORDER DISMISSING CASE as MOOT. CASE CLOSED. Signed by District Judge Debra M. Brown on 10/13/16. (jlm)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF MISSISSIPPI
MICHAEL LEE GORDON
ORDER OF DISMISSAL
Before the Court is the pro se petition of Michael Lee Gordon for a writ of habeas corpus
under 28 U.S.C. § 2241. In his petition, Gordon alleges that he was incarcerated pursuant to a
judgment issued by a district judge in the Southern District of Ohio and then wrongfully
transferred from the custody of the Federal Bureau of Prisons to the Mississippi Department of
Corrections “in violation of the laws and the United States Constitution.” Doc. #1. Although
Gordon’s petition asks for release generally, the documents attached to his petition make clear
that he is asking “[t]o be sent back to the Federal Bureau of Prisons.”
Since the filing of his petition, Gordon informed the Court in a separate case1 in this
district that he has been moved to the United States Penitentiary in Coleman, Florida.
Accordingly, the instant petition is DISMISSED as moot. A final judgment consistent with this
order will issue today.
SO ORDERED, this 13th day of October, 2016.
