June 25, 2015
DUSTIN HODGINS, Petitioner,
D. ZATECKY, Respondent.
ENTRY DISCUSSING PETITION FOR WRIT OF HABEAS CORPUS
TANYA WALTON PRATT, JUDGE United States District Court
This matter is before the Court on a Petition for Writ of Habeas Corpus filed by Petitioner Dustin Hodgins. In a prison disciplinary proceeding identified as No. ISR 14-10-0085 Mr. Hodgins was found guilty of engaging in an unauthorized financial transaction and was sanctioned. That determination has since been vacated and a new hearing will be conducted. [Filing No. 11-3]. This renders the habeas action moot, and an action which is moot must be dismissed for lack of jurisdiction. Diaz v. Duckworth, 143 F.3d 345, 347 (7th Cir. 1998); Board of Educ. of Downers Grove Grade School Dist. No. 58 v. Steven L, 89 F.3d 464, 467 (7th Cir. 1996).
The respondent’s motion to dismiss [dkt 11] is granted. Judgment consistent with this Entry shall now issue.
