Respondent has filed a motion to dismiss the petition as moot inasmuch as petitioner has been released from administrative detention pursuant to an Order of Supervision executed on or about April 5, 2007. (Docket No. 7, Affidavit of Gail Y. Mitchell, sworn to May 11, 2007, and Exhibit A--Order of Supervision).
