David Wesley Birrell, Aka Bella-Christina v. Keith Harlan Knauf

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


February 23, 2011

DAVID WESLEY BIRRELL, AKA BELLA-CHRISTINA BIRRELL, PLAINTIFF,
v.
KEITH HARLAN KNAUF, ET AL., DEFENDANTS.

The opinion of the court was delivered by: Craig M. Kellison United States Magistrate Judge

ORDER

Plaintiff, a prisoner proceeding pro se, brings this civil rights action pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983. Pending before the court is plaintiff's motion for an order appointing a jailhouse lawyer to assist her*fn1 (Doc. 18). The motion is denied as unnecessary because, where no reasonable alternative exists, plaintiff has a right to access to inmate assistance subject to the prison's ability to impose reasonable restrictions, and plaintiff has not claimed improper denial

by prison staff of access to a jailhouse lawyer. See Storseth v. Spellman, 654 F.2d 1349 (9th Cir. 1981).

IT IS SO ORDERED.
