December 6, 2010
STATE FARM LIFE INSURANCE COMPANY, 10 9 PLAINTIFF, 11
12 JASON CAI AND THE ESTATE OF YING DENG, DECEASED, 13 DEFENDANTS. 14
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Lucy H. Koh United States District Judge 1
United States District Court For the Northern District of California
15 ORDER RE: LEGAL ASSISTANCE
In his Motion to Dismiss filed November 16, 2010, Defendant Jason Cai requested the 16 Court's assistance in obtaining free legal assistance in this matter. In certain cases, the Federal Pro 17 Bono Project of the Northern District of California may attempt to secure pro bono representation 18 for litigants who cannot afford counsel. 19
In order to refer Defendant Cai to the Pro Bono Project, the Court must first determine that 20 he does not have the financial resources to retain counsel and that he has used reasonable (but 21 unsuccessful) efforts to retain private counsel. Accordingly, if Defendant Cai wishes to be referred 22 to the Pro Bono Project, he is directed to file with the Court a declaration describing: 23
(1) his financial resources, including any sources of income, and 24 (2) his efforts to retain private counsel.
IT IS SO ORDERED. 26
