JANE B. STRANCH, Circuit Judge. This diversity case involves claims that straddle the line between tort and contract and requires determination of the scope of Kentucky’s economic loss rule. The damages at issue were incurred when an RV refrigerator manufactured by Norcold overheated and caused a fire that destroyed the RV. The district court held that the economic loss rule as adopted in Kentucky does not prohibit State Farm from bringing a tort claim against Norcold. We affirm.

v.
SHAWN BREWER, Warden,
Respondent-Appellee.
   No. 15-2437
Appeal from the United States District Court for
the Eastern District of Michigan at Detroit.
No. 2:15-cv-12429—Denise Page Hood, Chief District Judge.
Argued: February 2, 2017
Decided and Filed: February 22, 2017
Before: GIBBONS, COOK, and KETHLEDGE, Circuit Judges.

OPINION

COOK, Circuit Judge. Petitioner Scott Witzke seeks habeas relief under 28 U.S.C. § 2254, asserting that a Michigan order revoking his parole violated his due process rights. The district court dismissed his petition for failure to exhaust state remedies, and a panel of this court later issued a certificate of appealability on that issue. After Witzke appealed, however, the Michigan Parole Board released him on parole. Because there is no longer any remediable injury, we DISMISS the appeal as MOOT.
