IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT EASTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS PINE BLUFF DIVISION JAMES EDWARD SMITH ADC #103093 vs. Civil Case No. 5:10CV00199-JMM-JTK RESPONDENT ORDER Now pending is Petitioner's Motion for Reconsideration of a July 29, 2010 order denying appointment of counsel (DE #14). Petitioner states in his motion that he "has limited access to [his prison's] Law Library," and he is "not able to Shepardize citations and/or statutes . . .because of the lack of access to legal materials." Petitioner references "Attachment #A" and "Attachment #B" to support his contentions; these documents are not attached, however, and the Court has not received them. Petitioner provides no further explanation as to why he cannot access his prison's legal resources. As Petitioner has not established a compelling reason why the Court should reconsider its earlier order, the Motion for Reconsideration is denied. If Petitioner, however, produces further proof and explanation as to why he cannot adequately access legal materials, the Court reserves the right to reconsider the motion. SO ORDERED this 17th day of August, 2010. PETITIONER RAY HOBBS Director, Arkansas Dept of Correction _________________________ United States Magistrate Judge
