Plaintiff has filed the following motions: (1) a motion for the Court’s assistance (Doc.
57); (2) a motion for appointment of counsel (Doc. 58); and (3) a motion for a Court order (Doc.
59). Each motion will be addressed in turn.
Motion for Court Assistance (Doc. 57)
Plaintiff asks the Court to assist him by: propounding interrogatories; scheduling a
deposition meeting with each Defendant and preparing a separate questionnaire for each
Defendant; and allow him to depose each Defendant.
The motion (Doc. 57) is denied. The Court does not propound interrogatories for any
party to a lawsuit. Plaintiff for some reason believes that the Court prepared a questionnaire for
the Defendants for use in his deposition. The Court did not prepare a questionnaire for
Defendants and will not do so for the Plaintiff.
Motion For Appointment of Counsel (Doc. 58)
This is the Plaintiff’s second motion for appointment of counsel. Plaintiff assets that he
is just now recalling having been kidnaped, beaten, and electrocuted for a period of hours by
three men. He maintains this event has caused him to lose mental acuity and has caused memory
loss. He asks that all proceedings be postponed and that he be appointed counsel.
The Court has reviewed the file. Plaintiff has filed numerous documents on his own
behalf. During his deposition, he answered all questions about the events this lawsuit is about.
He did not claim memory loss as a result of a kidnaping and beating. The Court believes the
Plaintiff is capable of representing himself. The motion (Doc. 58) is denied.
Motion for Court Order (Doc. 59)
In this motion, Plaintiff seeks an extension of time to file his summary judgment
response. This portion of the motion is moot. Plaintiff has filed his response (Doc. 60).
Next, he asks that the Clerk be ordered to provide him with all documents in this case.
He asserts the Boone County Jail does not allow certain types of mail and that the jail does not
have a law library. This motion (Doc. 59) is denied as moot. Plaintiff is no longer incarcerated
in the Boone County Jail. However, the Clerk is directed to send the Plaintiff a docket sheet.
If there are specific documents Plaintiff wants to request. he may do so; however, the Court will
not send him a copy of all document that have been filed in this case without a showing of good
IT IS SO ORDERED this 25th day of February 2013.
