CUMMINGS, Plaintiff, v. ) ) ) ) ) ) ) ) ) ) C I V I L ACTION NO. 1:05-CV-1093-F [W O ] JUDGE LARRY K. ANDERSON, et al., Defendants. ORDER ON MOTION On December 1, 2005, the plaintiff filed a document in which he requests that the court appoint counsel to represent him. See Court Doc. No. 5. The court therefore construes this document to contain a motion for appointment of counsel. The facts underlying the plaintiff's claims for relief are relatively simple and the law applicable to such claims is not complex. Moreover, the pleadings filed in this case establish that the plaintiff is capable of presenting the necessary elements of his claims to this court and fail to demonstrate that there are exceptional circumstances justifying appointment of counsel. See Bass v. Perrin, 170 F.3d 1312, 1320 (11th Cir. 1999); Kilgo v. Ricks, 983 F.2d 189, 193 (11th Cir. 1993); Dean v. Barber, 951 F.2d 1210, 1216 (11th Cir. 1992). Accordingly, it is ORDERED that the motion for appointment of counsel be and is hereby DENIED. Done this 2 n d day of December, 2005. /s/Charles S. Coody CHARLES S.
