UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT DISTRICT OF NEW JERSEY
October 25, 2007
DONNA INGRAM, ET AL., PLAINTIFFS,
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, ET AL., DEFENDANTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Mary L. Cooper United States District Judge
THE PLAINTIFFS bringing this action alleging a violation of the Eighth Amendment as to the incarcerated plaintiff, James Ingram (dkt. entry no. 1); and the defendants, by letter dated September 10, 2007 ("September 2007 Letter") (1) advising the plaintiffs' counsel that James Ingram "was released . . . from . . . custody . . . and the case brought by him is now moot", and (2) requesting that the plaintiffs execute a stipulation of dismissal (9-10-07 Donnelly Letter); and the defendants submitting to Chambers, but not electronically filing, a copy of the September 2007 Letter; and the defendants, as the plaintiffs apparently did not respond to the September 2007 Letter, now moving to dismiss the complaint as moot (dkt. entry no. 4); and the Court receiving no opposition to the motion; and
THE COURT thus intending to (1) decide the motion without oral argument, see Fed.R.Civ.P. 78, (2) grant the motion, (3) dismiss the complaint, and (4) close the action; and for good cause appearing, the Court will issue an appropriate order and judgment.
