UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
ANDREA JACKSON, on behalf of J.H., a
No. 2:14-1659 CKD PS
CAROLYN W. COLVIN, Acting
Commissioner of Social Security,
This action, seeking judicial review of a final decision of the Commissioner of Social
Security, was filed pro se on behalf of a minor child. A minor can only proceed if represented by
counsel. Johns v. County of San Diego, 114 F.3d 874 (9th Cir. 1997). Plaintiff will therefore be
granted thirty days in which to obtain counsel.
Accordingly, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that plaintiff is granted thirty days from the date
of this order to obtain counsel and file a substitution of attorney. Failure to obtain counsel will
result in a recommendation this action be dismissed without prejudice.
Dated: July 16, 2014
