White v. LaClair, No. 19-cv-1283 (E.D.N.Y. 2021)
Nature of Case: Petitioner had previously been convicted of a sex offense and filed a habeas corpus petition, seeking to be relieved of the requirements imposed on him by New York’s sex offense registration act.
Holding: Federal trial court for the Eastern District of New York dismissed the petition, holding that being subject to New York’s SORA did not satisfy the “in custody” requirement for filing a habeas corpus petition.
