Locklear v. Schwiner

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


February 1, 2010

CLIFFORD LOCKLEAR, PLAINTIFF,
v.
DR. SCHWINER, ET AL., DEFENDANTS.

ORDER

Plaintiff has filed a second motion for appointment of counsel.*fn1 The United States Supreme Court has ruled that district courts lack authority to require counsel to represent indigent prisoners in § 1983 cases. Mallard v. United States Dist. Court, 490 U.S. 296, 298 (1989). In certain exceptional circumstances, the court may request the voluntary assistance of counsel pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1915(e)(1). Terrell v. Brewer, 935 F.2d 1015, 1017 (9th Cir. 1991); Wood v. Housewright, 900 F.2d 1332, 1335-36 (9th Cir. 1990). In the present case, the court still does not find the required exceptional circumstances. Plaintiff's second motion for the appointment of counsel will therefore be denied.

In accordance with the above, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that plaintiff's December 31, 2009 motion for the appointment of counsel is denied.
