THIS MATTER having been opened by the Court sua sponte, and
it appearing that:
On April 28, 2017, Petitioner Jerome Lamar Young
(“Petitioner”) filed a Petition for Writ of Habeas Corpus
pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2254, challenging his 2016 municipal
(ECF No. 1.)
The Court conducted its initial screening of the
Petition and ordered Respondent to file an Answer.
(ECF No. 3.)
On July 20, 2017, Respondent filed the Answer.
According to the online offender database maintained by
the New Jersey Department of Corrections, Petitioner was
released from custody on August 11, 2017.
Since his release from Northern State Prison,
Petitioner has not communicated with the Court regarding his
habeas Petition, including failing to provide the Court with his
new address in violation of L. Civ. R. 10.1.
See L. Civ. R.
10.1(a) (“Counsel and/or unrepresented parties must advise the
Court of any change in their or their client’s address within
seven days of being apprised of such change by filing a notice
of said change with the Clerk.”).
Based on Petitioner’s failure to update his address in
compliance with Local Civil Rule 10.1, the Court will
administratively terminate this matter.
If Petitioner updates
his address and otherwise satisfies all appropriate Rules, the
Court will re-open this action and address his habeas claims.
An appropriate order follows.
Dated: October 26, 2017
At Camden, New Jersey
