OPINION & ORDER: Having carefully reviewed the submissions and entire record in this matter, and having heard the parties, the Court is convinced that it must grant the petition for habeas corpus. Constitutional principles of due process and the avo idance of unnecessary cruelty here allow and provide for an orderly departure. Petitioner is entitled to the freedom to say goodbye. Accordingly, it is hereby ORDERED that petitioner shall be immediately released from custody. SO ORDERED. (Signed by Judge Katherine B. Forrest on 1/29/2018) (mml)
