ORDER GRANTING REQUEST TO WITHDRAW PETITION [Dkt No. 5, 7]
On July 10, 2007, petitioner Arif Durrani ("Durrani"), proceeding pro se, filed a Petition For Writ of Habeas Corpus ("Petition") purportedly pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2241, alleging "illegal detention." The court construed the Petition as seeking 28 U.S.C. § 2255 relief, notified Durrani in an Order entered October 9, 2007 of its intent to recharacterize his filing as a Section 2255 motion, and provided him with the explanation, notice, and admonitions required by Castro v. United States, 540 U.S. 375, 382 (2003). Dkt No. 5. The court gave Durrani the options to withdraw the Petition, to file an Amended Petition, or to proceed with the Petition recharacterized as a Section 2255 motion. Durrani's timely response to the Order instructs the Petition be withdrawn. Dkt No. 7. The request is GRANTED. Accordingly, the Clerk of Court shall terminate this action in its entirety, without prejudice.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
