DECISION AND ORDER
By notice of motion filed February 5, 2008 (Dkt. #9), respondents moved to dismiss this petition, which had been filed pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2241, on the grounds that the petition is now moot. Based on the affidavit of Assistant United States Attorney Gail Y. Mitchell, I agree with respondents that the petition is indeed moot because petitioner has obtained the relief that he sought, that is, release from administrative custody pending his deportation. Based on that administrative decision releasing petitioner, the petition is moot and is therefore dismissed.
The petition of Zimran Michael for relief under 28 U.S.C. § 2241 is dismissed.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
