Yvette Kane, District Judge
United States District Court
Middle District of Pennsylvania
Petitioner filed his § 2241 petition on February 26, 2015, challenging the Bureau of Prison’s
computation of his federal sentence. On January 30, 2017, Petitioner was resentenced by the United
States District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania to time served. Consequently, on
January 31, 2017, Petitioner was released from the Bureau of Prison’s custody, thereby effectively
rendering his petition moot, as Petitioner was provided with the relief he sought.
The docket reveals that the Report and Recommendation, mailed to Petitioner’s last known
address at the United States Penitentiary at Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, was returned as undeliverable
due to Petitioner’s release from prison. (Doc. No. 8.) Petitioner was required to maintain a current
address on file with the clerk of court pursuant to Local Rule 83.18. The Court construes
Petitioner’s failure to maintain a current address with the court as reflecting an intention to forgo
litigating this matter by filing objections to the Report and Recommendation.
