Raymond I. Brantley, Petitioner-appellant, v. United States of America, Respondent-appellee, 448 F.2d 770 (5th Cir. 1971)

Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit - 448 F.2d 770 (5th Cir. 1971) September 16, 1971

Raymond I. Brantley, pro se.

John W. Stokes, Jr., U. S. Atty., E. Ray Taylor, Jr., Atlanta, Ga., for respondent-appellee.

Before GEWIN, GOLDBERG and DYER, Circuit Judges.


Appellant filed a habeas petition in the district court seeking immediate reinstatement of his mandatory release from a five-year federal sentence. He alleged that he had never been informed whether his mandatory release had been revoked although nearly five months had elapsed since his revocation hearing before the parole board.1 

Appellant's full sentence expired on June 1, 1971, on which date he was released from federal custody. Thus the appeal is rendered moot and is therefore dismissed.


It is appropriate to dispose of this pro se case summarily, pursuant to this Court's local Rule9(c) (2), appellant having failed to file a brief within the time fixed by Rule 31, Federal Rules of Appellate Procedure. Kimbrough v. Beto, Director, 5th Cir. 1969, 412 F.2d 981
