Cummins Unit, ADC, et al.
Plaintiff, Zachary Willis, has filed a Motion seeking reconsideration of the
Court’s decision to deny him appointed counsel. Docs. 8, 9, & 10. Plaintiff contends
that he needs an attorney because he cannot adequately read or write, and he depends
on fellow prisoners to assist him in preparing his pleadings. Id. The pleadings
Plaintiff has filed, with the assistance of fellow prisoners, have adequately explained
the alleged facts and his claims for relief. Thus, there is no need to appoint counsel
at this time.
IT IS THEREFORE ORDERED THAT Plaintiff's Motion for Reconsideration
of the Denial of Counsel (Doc. 9) is DENIED.
Dated this 17th day of January, 2014.
