SANDHAM, et al., Defendants. / In the January 23, 2009, order, the court found appointment of counsel for plaintiff to be warranted. Accordingly, the court finds as follows: Efforts to obtain legal representation without order of this court would be futile; 1. Plaintiff's income is 125 percent or less of the current poverty threshold established by the Office of Management and Budget of the United States and is otherwise without resources to obtain counsel; 2. This case is of a type that attorneys in this district ordinarily do not accept without prepayment of a fee; 3. This case is not a fee generating case within the meaning of California Business and Professions Code 8030.4(g); and \\\\\ 1 ORDER CHARLES STRAIN, Plaintiff, No. CIV S-05-0474 GEB GGH P IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 4.
