This is an appeal by the petitioner, Harry Carlisle, in habeas corpus, from a judgment of the United States District Court which denied him his liberty pending final determination of proceedings before the immigration authorities to deport him.1 In the course of the hearings referred to, Mr. Justice Douglas of the United States Supreme Court ordered petitioner's release, pending decision of this court upon the appeal, upon his giving a bail bond in the sum of $5,000. Petitioner-appellant furnished bond and he was released and he has been at large ever since.


The deportation proceedings have now been completed and petitioner-appellant has finally been ordered deported.


We therefore hold that this appeal is moot. United States ex rel. Spinella v. Savoretti, 5 Cir., 201 F.2d 364, certiorari denied 345 U.S. 975, 73 S.Ct. 1124, 97 L.Ed. 1390.


Appeal dismissed.
