Lugg v. Holder

United States District Court, W.D. New York

September 25, 2014

TEVIEAE LUGG, A76-553-785 Petitioner,
v.
ERIC H. HOLDER, Attorney General of the United States; MICHAEL PHILIPS, Field Office Director for Detention and Removal, Buffalo Field Office, Bureau of Immigration and Customs Enforcement; DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND SECURITY; and TODD TRYON, Facility Director, Buffalo Federal Detention Facility, Respondents.

ORDER

JOHN T. CURTIN, District Judge.

Petitioner, Tevieae Lugg, filed a petition for habeas corpus relief pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2241 challenging his continued administrative detention in the custody of the Department of Homeland Security/Immigration and Customs Enforcement ("DHS/ICE") pending removal. Dkt. #1.[1] Respondents have filed a motion to dismiss the petition as moot inasmuch as petitioner's removal was effected by DHS/ICE on or about August 28, 2014. Dkt. #4 (Affidavit of Gail Y. Mitchell, Esq.), ¶¶ 4-5. Respondents' counsel has submitted a copy of the Warrant of Removal/Deportation of DHS/ICE verifying the petitioner's removal. Id., Exh. A.

Accordingly, in light of the fact that petitioner's removal has been effected and he no longer is in the custody of the Department of Homeland Security, the respondents' motion to dismiss the petition is granted and the petition is dismissed.[2]

The Court hereby certifies, pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1915(a)(3), that any appeal from this judgment would not be taken in good faith and therefore denies leave to appeal as a poor person. Coppedge v. United States, 369 U.S. 438 (1962).

Petitioner must file any notice of appeal with the Clerk's Office, United States District Court, Western District of New York, within sixty (60) days of the date of judgment in this action. Requests to proceed on appeal as a poor person must be filed with the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit in accordance with the requirements of Rule 24 of the Federal Rules of Appellate Procedure.

IT HEREBY IS ORDERED, that the petition is dismissed; and

FURTHER, that leave to appeal as a poor person is denied.

SO ORDERED.
