UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
DISTRICT OF NEW JERSEY
Civ. No. 15-8773(RMB)
BUMB, United States District Judge
This matter comes before the Court upon Respondent’s letter
request (ECF No. 5) to dismiss the present habeas petition as
moot. In his § 2241 habeas petition, Petitioner sought immediate
transfer to a Residential Reentry Center. He was subsequently
transferred to Residential Reentry Center on January 13, 2016.
Therefore, this case no longer presents an actual controversy.
See Burkey v. Marberry, 556 F.3d 142, 147 (3d Cir. 2009) (under
requirement means that throughout the litigation, the plaintiff
“‘must have suffered, or be threatened with, an actual injury
favorable judicial decision.’” (quoting Spencer v. Kemna, 523
U.S. 1, 7 (1998) (quoting Lewis v. Continental Bank Corp., 494
U.S. 472, 477 (1990)).
For the reasons discussed above, the Court will dismiss
Petitioner’s habeas petition as moot in the accompanying Order
