MOREIRA-QUIJIJE v. UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF NEW YORK
OPINION. Signed by Judge Noel L. Hillman on 8/24/17. (jbk, )
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
DISTRICT OF NEW JERSEY
UNITED STATES DIST. COURT
FOR THE E. DIST. OF N.Y.,
EDISON IVAN MOREIRA-QUIJIJE,
Civil Action No. 17-5756 (NLH)
IT APPEARING THAT:
Petitioner Edison Ivan Moreira-Quijije (“Petitioner”)
has filed a Petition for Writ of Habeas Corpus Pursuant to 28
U.S.C. § 2241 before this Court.
(ECF No. 1.)
2. In his Petition, Petitioner is requesting that the Court
“expedite the motion for reduction of sentence, 18 U.S.C. §
3582(c)(2), which, pursuant to Amendment 782.”
(Pet. ¶ 15.)
To the best the Court can discern, it appears that
Petitioner filed a Motion for Sentence Reduction Pursuant to 18
U.S.C. § 3582(c)(2) with the sentencing court, the United States
District Court for the Eastern District of New York, in 2015.
U.S. v. Moreira-Quijije, Crim. Action No. 11-380 (E.D.N.Y.).
While that motion was pending, Petitioner filed the
instant habeas Petition, which appears to be a request to
expedite a decision by the Eastern District of New York.
he filed the instant Petition, the District Court in the Eastern
District has granted his motion for a sentence reduction.
Because it appears that he has received the only relief
he was seeking, i.e. a decision on the sentence reduction
motion, the Court will dismiss the instant Petition as moot.
the extent the Court has misconstrued the nature of Petitioner’s
claims or his requested relief, Petitioner may file a motion for
reconsideration within 30 days of the date of this Memorandum
An appropriate order follows.
Dated: August 24, 2017
At Camden, New Jersey
