United States District Court, D. Oregon
February 18, 2014
CHRIS CRAWFORD, Petitioner,
GREG ROBERTS, Respondent.
ANN AIKEN, District Judge.
Respondent moves to deny the Petition and dismiss this proceeding as moot because the petitioner died on January 3, 2014, and the Psychiatric Review Board discharged petitioner from their jurisdiction on January 8, 2014 as a result. See Respondent's Motion to Dismiss (#20), Attachment A. Under these circumstances, dismissal is appropriate. See, eg. Garceau v. Woodford , 399 F.3d 1101 (9th Cir. 2005).; Griffey v. Lindsey , 349 F.3d 1157 (9th Cir. 2003).
Respondent's Motion (#20) is allowed. Petitioner's Motion to Reconsider appointment of Counsel (#19) is denied as moot. The Clerk of the Court is directed to enter a judgment dismissing this action.
