Freeman v. Evans

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


June 4, 2009

DORN ALLEN FREEMAN, PETITIONER,
v.
M. S. EVANS, RESPONDENT.

ORDER

Petitioner has requested the appointment of counsel. There currently exists no absolute right to appointment of counsel in habeas corpus 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. In this case, findings and recommendations have been entered and the case is awaiting review by the district judge. It does not appear that the interests of justice would be served by the appointment of counsel at this time.

Accordingly, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that petitioner's June 1, 2009 request for appointment of counsel is denied.
