IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
December 3, 2012
LUIS VALENZUELA RODRIGUEZ, PLAINTIFF,
JAMES TILTON, ET AL., DEFENDANTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Allison Claire United States Magistrate Judge
Plaintiff is a prison inmate proceeding pro se and in forma pauperis with a civil rights action. On November 13, 2012, plaintiff filed his third request for the appointment of counsel. As with his first two requests, plaintiff seeks appointment of counsel on the grounds that he is indigent, that the issues in this case are complex, and that he is a mental health patient. Plaintiff's previous requests were filed on June 30, 2008 (Doc. No. 4) and April 11, 2011 (Doc. No. 55). Both requests were denied. See Doc. Nos. 5, 58.
In light of those orders, and because plaintiff has not presented new facts or circumstances warranting the appointment of counsel, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that plaintiff's November 13, 2012 request (Doc. No. 135) is denied.
