ICE refused to release client until procedural steps are completed. Client retained Attorney Chelico for representation. After giving the government an opportunity to release client did not result in any action, attorney Chelico filed a Writ ofHabeas Corpus in Federal District Court requesting a court order for release of client from unlawful detention. The District Court issued an Order to Show Cause.
Shortly after the Writ of Habeas Corpus was filed, client was released from custody and permitted to return home. Case was subsequently dismissed without prejudice upon client’s request.
