BROACH, #136351, Plaintiff, v. STATE OF ALABAMA OFFICE OF THE ATTORNEY GENERAL, et al., Defendants. ) ) ) ) ) ) ) ) ) ) ) CIVIL ACTION NO. 2:06-CV-1111-MEF [WO] ORDER ON MOTION In his complaint, the plaintiff requests the appointment of counsel. Court Doc. No. 1 at 10. The court construes this request as a motion for appointment of counsel. Upon review of the complaint, the court finds that 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 by the plaintiff in this case and several other cases 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 21st day of December, 2006. /s/ Charles S. Coody CHARLES S.
