IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
February 23, 2009
ROBERT GUY BAKER, PLAINTIFF,
SCOTT KERNAN, DEFENDANTS.
Plaintiff is a prison inmate proceeding pro se and in forma pauperis with a civil rights action. On February 12, 2009, plaintiff filed his eighth request for the appointment of counsel. Plaintiff's previous requests were filed on January 9, 2006, October 23, 2006, May 7, 2007, May 15, 2007, August 14, 2007, October 16, 2007 and November 29, 2007. All requests were denied. In light of those orders, and the court's determination that there has been no material change in the relevant factors, plaintiff's current request will be denied.
Plaintiff has also filed a motion in which he asks that the court order officials at his prison to allow him to conduct legal research by using a computer. Plaintiff has failed to present any valid legal basis upon which the court could grant his motion. Therefore, it will be denied.
Accordingly, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that:
1. Plaintiff's February 12, 2009 request for the appointment of counsel (# 86) is denied.
2. Plaintiff's February 12, 2009 "motion in request for court order to prison directing them to allow plaintiff computer access in library" (#85) is denied.
