IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
August 14, 2008
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, PLAINTIFF/RESPONDENT,
MATHIAS ZEWDIE, DEFENDANT/PETITIONER.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Oliver W. Wanger United States District Judge
ORDER DENYING PETITIONER ZEWDIE'S "EXTRAORDINARY RELIEF (MANDAMUS, SUMMARY JUDGMENT FOR RETURN OF PROPERTY, ETC.)" (Doc. 192)
On March 7, 2005, Mathias Zewdie filed a motion for return of property. The United States was ordered to respond to the motion. The United States denied ever having custody or control of any of the property listed in Petitioner's motion. Petitioner filed a reply. By Order filed on April 25, 2005, Petitioner's motion for return of property was denied on the ground that the United States does not possess the property identified by Petitioner and further stating:
In the event that Petitioner seeks to further pursue his property, he must proceed expeditiously in accordance with the law governing the filing of government claims. (Doc. 189).
On February 16, 2006, Petitioner filed an "Extraordinary Relief (Mandamus, Summary Judgment for Return of Property, Etc.)", (Doc. 192). Petitioner's February 16, 2006 pleading essentially makes contentions previously made to the Court in connection with Petitioner's initial motion for return of property. Because Petitioner's initial motion for return of property was denied by Order filed on April 25, 2005, Petitioner's February 16, 2006 pleading is denied as moot.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
