Hendricks v. Higgins, et al. (INMATE 1)
ORDER denying 7 Motion for appointment of counsel. Signed by Honorable Judge Charles S. Coody on 2/3/14. (scn, )
IN THE DISTRICT COURT OF THE UNITED STATES
FOR THE MIDDLE DISTRICT OF ALABAMA
LEONARD CHARLES HENDRICKS,
JUDGE PAMELA R. HIGGINS, et al.,
CIVIL ACTION NO. 2:14-CV-24-TMH
ORDER ON MOTION
On January 31, 2014, the plaintiff filed a motion for appointment of counsel (Doc. No. 7).
A review of the file in this case demonstrates that the plaintiff is capable of presenting the relevant
facts and necessary elements of his claims to this court. In addition, the law applicable to such
claims is not complex nor is the plaintiff required to cite any case law to this court in order to
proceed on his claims. Thus, the record at this stage of the proceedings fails to demonstrate there
are circumstances present herein, exceptional or otherwise, 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, the interests of justice
do not now warrant appointment of counsel, and it is
ORDERED that the motion for appointment of counsel be and is hereby DENIED.
Done this 3rd day of February, 2014.
