United States District Court, N.D. Alabama, Middle Division
June 15, 2015
CLAUDIO CONCEPCION, Petitioner,
SCOTT HASSELL et al., Respondents.
L. SCOTT COOGLER, District Judge.
On March 23, 2015, the Petitioner, a citizen of the Dominican Republic, filed the instant petition for a writ of habeas corpus pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2241, challenging his continued detention at the Etowah County Detention Center. (Doc. 1). The case is now before the court on the Respondents' motion to dismiss the petition as moot. (Doc. 6). In their motion, the Respondents note that the Petitioner has been deported from the United States.
Because the Petitioner has been deported, there is no longer any relief that can be provided to him and his petition 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.
