CIVIL ACTION NO. 1:21-CV-120
In August 2021, Petitioner Daniel David Gomez petitioned this Court for a writ of habeas
corpus, alleging that he was being held in jail in violation of his right to a speedy trial. (Petition,
Doc. 1, 1) At the time the petition was filed, Gomez was awaiting trial for unspecified charges at
the Willacy County Jail in Raymondville, Texas. (Id. at 1–2, 4)
After the petition was filed, Gomez filed a Notice of Change of Address with the Court.
(Notice, Doc. 14) In that Notice, Gomez stated that he was “no longer in [the] County jail.” (Id.
at 1) A United States Magistrate Judge ordered Gomez to file an update with the Court as to
whether the criminal charges against him had been resolved and whether he was still seeking a
speedy trial. (Order, Doc. 15) Gomez failed to submit the requested update.
A United States Magistrate Judge recommends that Gomez’s petition be dismissed
without prejudice for want of prosecution. (R&R, Doc. 18) No party filed objections to the Report
and Recommendation, and the Court finds no clear error within it.1
The Court ADOPTS the Report and Recommendation (Doc. 18). As a result, it is:
ORDERED that Petitioner Daniel David Gomez’s Petition for a Writ of Habeas Corpus
(Doc. 1) is DISMISSED WITHOUT PREJUDICE.
The Court notes that on December 21, 2022, the Report and Recommendation was signed for at the address that
Gomez provided in his Notice of Change of Address. (See Return Receipt, Doc. 20)

Signed on January 7, 2022.
