Baker v. German, et al.
ORDER STRIKING 8 Plaintiff's Motion to Appoint Counsel for Lack of Signature signed by Magistrate Judge Stanley A. Boone on 1/9/2017. (Jessen, A)
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
DOMINIQUE D. BAKER,
HUMBERTO GERMAN, et al.,
ORDER STRIKING PLAINTIFF’S SECOND
MOTION FOR APPOINTMENT OF COUNSEL,
FOR LACK OF SIGNATURE
[ECF No. 8]
pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983.
Currently before the Court is Plaintiff’s second motion for appointment of counsel, filed
Case No.: 1:16-cv-01873-SAB (PC)
Plaintiff Dominique Baker is appearing pro se and in forma pauperis in this civil rights action
January 6, 2017.
On January 3, 2017, Plaintiff filed an almost identical motion for appointment of counsel
which was denied, without prejudice, on January 5, 2017. Plaintiff’s second motion appointment of
counsel is procedurally deficient because Plaintiff failed to sign the motion as required by Rule 11(a)
of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure and Local Rule 131(b). Thus, Plaintiff’s second motion for
the appointment of counsel shall be stricken from the record.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
