MEMORANDUM OPINION AND ORDER
The Court has received a letter from the Government in response
to the Court's order directing the Government to return the
petitioner's passports or show a continuing need for their
retention. The petitioner's request for passports is unrelated to
his separate application to modify or set aside a condition of
his supervised release, and was denied as moot in a separate
order that concerned the petitioner's application regarding his

The Government notes that it will continue to search for the
petitioner's passport, and the petitioner can explore what
actions, if any, he may have against the Government as a result
of any loss.
