United States District Court, N.D. Alabama, Middle Division
March 23, 2015
SURU NOEL, Petitioner,
SCOTT HASSELL et al., Respondents.
SHARON LOVELACE BLACKBURN, District Judge.
This case is before the court on Respondents' Motion to Dismiss Petition as Moot. (Doc. 4). In their motion, the Respondents note that the Petitioner was released from ICE custody pursuant to an Order of Supervision on March 4, 2015. The Respondents argue that because the Petitioner has been released from ICE custody, this case is due to be dismissed as moot.
On March 2, 2015, the Petitioner filed a petition for writ of habeas corpus seeking to be released from custody pending his removal to South Sudan. (Doc. 1). Because he has been released on an Order of Supervision, his petition seeking that very relief is moot. See Nyaga v. Ashcroft, 323 F.3d 906, 913 (11th Cir. 2003) ("a case must be dismissed as moot if the court can no longer provide meaningful relief'"). Accordingly, this matter is due to be dismissed. Khader v. Holder, 843 F.Supp.2d 1202 (N.D. Ala. 2011). A separate order will be entered.
