GARLAND E. BURRELL, Jr., Senior District Judge.
On June 12, 2013, Plaintiffs filed an "Exparte Application for Appointment of Guardian Ad Litem for Plaintiff Jane Doe." (ECF No. 8.) Plaintiffs have not shown justification to use a pseudonym on behalf of the minor plaintiff. (See Order 2 n.2, June 12, 2013, ECF No. 7.) Further, as explained by the undersigned judge's June 12, 2013 Order, which was filed on the pubic docket more than an hour before Plaintiffs filed the instant application, Plaintiffs have not shown a "need for the court to appoint a guardian ad litem" in this case. Croce v. Bromley Corp. , 623 F.2d 1084, 1093 (5th Cir. 1980); see Order, ECF No. 7.
For the stated reasons, Plaintiffs' application (ECF No. 8) is DENIED.
