Villanueva v. Evans

IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA


April 21, 2009

PHILLIP VILLANUEVA, PETITIONER,
v.
MIKE EVANS, RESPONDENT.

ORDER

Petitioner has once again requested the appointment of counsel. There currently exists no absolute right to appointment of counsel in habeas proceedings. See Nevius v. Sumner, 105 F.3d 453, 460 (9th Cir. 1996). However, 18 U.S.C. § 3006A authorizes the appointment of counsel at any stage of the case "if the interests of justice so require." See Rule 8(c), Fed. R. Governing § 2254 Cases. At this time, it does not appear that the interests of justice would be served by the appointment of counsel in this case.

IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that petitioner's April 16, 2009 request for appointment of counsel is denied.
