UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF MISSOURI
DARNELL WESLY MOON,
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,
Case No. 1:16 CV 106 RWS
MEMORANDUM AND ORDER
On May 23, 2016, Petitioner Darnell Moon filed a motion to vacate pursuant
to 28 U.S.C. ' 2255. On July 15, 2016, Respondent filed a response to the motion.
On August 9, 2016, Moon filed a motion seeking an extension of time up to
September 15, 2016 to file a reply to Respondent’s response. I granted that motion.
Moon never filed a reply. I carefully reviewed Moon’s motion to vacate and found
it to be without merit. On October 21, 2016, I entered an order which denied
Moon’s motion to vacate. The order granting an extension of time and the order
dismissing the motion to vacate were both sent to an address at a halfway house
Moon provided to the Court: 334 Tanglewood Court, Nashville, TN 37211.
On November 29, 2016, Moon filed a motion to vacate my dismissal of his
motion to vacate. Moon asserts that he left the halfway house on October 15, 2016
“due to circumstances beyond his control.” He was picked up the United States
Marshals and is now in custody at the Grayson County Detention Center in
Moon’s decision to leave the custody of the halfway house has consequences.
Moon’s failure to file a reply brief as directed by the Court was caused by Moon’s
own actions. By his own actions Moon has forfeited his opportunity to file a reply
More importantly, Moon’s motion to vacate is completely without merit.
There is no reason to prolong this matter given Moon’s baseless grounds for relief in
his motion to vacate.
IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that Petitioner Darnell Moon’s motion to
vacate the dismissal of his motion vacate, set aside, or correct his sentence  is
