Latwahn Mcelroy v. Roy Cox

April 24, 2012

LATWAHN MCELROY,
PLAINTIFF,
v.
ROY COX, ET AL., DEFENDANTS.



The opinion of the court was delivered by: Gary S. Austin United States Magistrate Judge

ORDER DENYING REQUEST FOR APPOINTMENT OF PRIVATE INVESTIGATOR AND COURT RUNNER (Doc. 125.)

On April 23, 2012, Plaintiff filed a request for appointment of a private investigator and court runner, to assist him in litigating this action. (Doc. 125.)

The expenditure of public funds on behalf of an indigent litigant is proper only when authorized by Congress. See Tedder v. Odel, 890 F.2d 210 (9th Cir. 1989) (citations omitted). The in forma pauperis statute does not authorize the expenditure of public funds for the purpose sought by Plaintiff in the instant request.

Accordingly, Plaintiff's request for the appointment of a private investigator and court runner is HEREBY DENIED.

IT IS SO ORDERED.
