United States District Court, N.D. Alabama, Middle Division
April 15, 2015
ELVIS JOSEPH AMARAME, Petitioner,
ERIC H. HOLDER, JR., et al., Respondents.
KARON OWEN BOWDRE, Chief District Judge.
This matter comes before the court on the "Respondent's Motion to Dismiss Petition as Moot" (doc. 11) and the magistrate judge's report and recommendation entered on February 26, 2015 (doc. 13). The magistrate judge recommends that the court dismiss as moot Amarame's habeas corpus petition filed pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2241 because he is no longer in ICE custody, and the court can grant him no further relief. (Doc. 13). Neither party has filed any objections.
The court has carefully reviewed and considered de novo all the materials in the court file, including the report and recommendation. The court ADOPTS the magistrate judge's report and ACCEPTS his recommendation to grant the Respondent's motion to dismiss and dismiss the petition as moot. The court finds that, because ICE released Amarame on an order of supervision on December 30, 2014, his petition is moot because the court can no longer provide "meaningful relief." See Nyaga v. Ashcroft, 323 F.3d 906, 913 (11th Cir. 2003). The court further finds that no exception to the mootness doctrine applies in this case. See Carafas v. LaVallee, 391 U.S. 234, 237 (1968); Murphy v. Hunt, 455 U.S. 478, 482 (1982).
Consequently, the petition for writ of habeas corpus filed pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2241 is due to be DISMISSED as MOOT.
The court will enter a separate, final Order.
