United States District Court, D. Columbia
October 13, 2005.
DERRICK DAVIS, Petitioner,
U.S. PAROLE COMMISSION, et al., Respondents.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: HENRY KENNEDY JR., District Judge
This matter is before the Court on respondent's opposition to
the petition for a writ of habeas corpus. By Order of July 7,
2005, petitioner was advised to respond to the opposition by
August 12, 2005, or risk summary dismissal of the petition.
Petitioner has neither filed a response nor sought additional
time to do so. He effectively challenges the United States Parole
Commission's jurisdiction over parole determinations of District
of Columbia prisoners. Petitioner's claim is without merit for
the reasons advanced in respondent's opposition. See
Respondent's Opposition to Petitioner's Motion for a Writ of
Habeas Corpus at 3-7. Petitioner also claims that he is serving a
sentence that has expired, but he has not refuted respondent's
assertion and evidence that he has "overlook[ed]" the forfeiture
upon his parole revocation of credit for time spent on parole.
Id. at 8-9. Accordingly, the habeas petition is denied. A
separate Order of dismissal accompanies this Memorandum.
