IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
June 22, 2009
HERMAN LEE HILL, PETITIONER,
JEANNE WOODFORD, ET AL., RESPONDENTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Gregory G. Hollows United States Magistrate Judge
By Order, filed in this court on June 16, 2009 (docket # 23), the Ninth Circuit granted petitioner's (now appellant's) motion for appointment of counsel for petitioner/appellant's appeal of the denial of his § 2254 petition. Therein, the Ninth Circuit clerk was directed to serve the order upon the appointing authority for the Eastern District of California so that appointed counsel could be located; however, it is not clear whether this order has been served upon the Federal Defender. Although the court formally appoints counsel, it is the Office of the Federal Defender that locates and assigns specific counsel in a case such as this in this district.
Accordingly, IT IS ORDERED that the clerk of this district court serve a copy of the Ninth Circuit Order, located at docket # 23, as well as a copy of this order upon, Carolyn M. Wiggin, Assistant Federal Defender; the Ninth Circuit is to be separately served with a copy of this order at firstname.lastname@example.org.
