Lindsey has appealed Magistrate Judge Kearney's decision denying his
motion for counsel. NQ 62. Judge Kearney's decision is affirmed because it's
neither clearly erroneous nor contrary to settled law. FED. R. Crv. P. 72(a).
Lindsey's appeal of Judge Kearney's discovery rulings, NQ 63, also fails. The
Court sees no error of law or abuse of discretion. Magistrate Judges are
authorized to handle these preliminary matters. 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(l)(A);
LOCAL RULE 72.1(VII). The Court also declines to remove Judge Kearney:
Lindsey's allegations of bias are frivolous. Adverse rulings don't show bias.
