Johnson v. Sandoval et al
ORDER DENYING 37 Motion to Appoint Counsel signed by Chief Judge Ralph R. Beistline on 4/9/2014. (Sant Agata, S)
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
Case No. 1:12-cv-00018-RRB
MOTION AT DOCKET 37
C. LOPEZ, et al.,
At Docket 37 Plaintiff Dontay Johnson, a federal prisoner appearing pro se,
renewed his prior motion to appoint counsel, which the Court denied.1 As this Court
explained in denying Johnson’s initial motion, this case involves the use of excessive force
in conducting a search, primarily a fact-driven issue that does not involve intricate or
complicated questions of law. While this Court is not unmindful of the difficulties faced by
individuals proceeding pro se, especially prisoners, nothing in Johnson’s current motion
convinces the Court to reconsider its earlier decision and appoint counsel.
Accordingly, the Emergency Motion for the Appointment of Counsel at Docket 37
IT IS SO ORDERED this 9th day of April, 2014.
S/ RALPH R. BEISTLINE
UNITED STATES DISTRICT JUDGE
See Dockets 30 (Motion), 32 (Order).
