IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
July 22, 2011
MATTHEW LAWRENCE CHAPPELL, PETITIONER,
GARY SWARTHOUT, WARDEN, RESPONDENT.
Petitioner is a state prisoner proceeding pro se with this application for a writ of habeas corpus pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2254. On June 3, 2011, the undersigned issued findings and recommendations which recommended that petitioner's application for habeas relief be denied. On June 13, 2011, petitioner filed a document entitled "motion to dismiss," in which he "requests that the above entitled case be dismissed as moot because Petitioner has been released on parole."
In light of the circumstances set forth above, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that respondents shall notify this court, within ten days, whether they have any objection to the dismissal of this action.
Should respondents fail to respond, petitioner's request will be granted pursuant to Fed. R. Civ. P. 41(a). See Rule 11, Rules Governing Habeas Corpus Cases Under Section 2254.
