Opinion

Case No.: 4:19-cv-1133-AKK-JEO

12-02-2019

RAHIM AL-ZARKANI, Petitioner, v. WARDEN, ETOWAH COUNTY JAIL, et al., Respondents.


MEMORANDUM OPINION

The magistrate judge filed a report on October 31, 2019, recommending that Respondents' motion to dismiss be granted and that the petition for a writ of habeas corpus be dismissed as moot based on Petitioner's removal to Iraq. Doc. 19. Although the magistrate judge advised Petitioner of his right to file specific written objections within fourteen days, no objections have been received by the court. Id.

Having carefully reviewed and considered de novo all the materials in the court file, including the report and recommendation, the magistrate judge's report is hereby ADOPTED and the recommendation is ACCEPTED. Because Petitioner has been removed, the court can no longer provide meaningful relief. Thus, the court finds that the petition for writ of habeas corpus is moot. See Nyaga v. Ashcroft, 323 F.3d 906, 913 (11th Cir. 2003). Accordingly, Respondents' motion to dismiss, doc. 16, is due to be granted and the petition is due to be dismissed.

A separate order will be entered.

DONE the 2nd day of December, 2019.
