GRACE MILES, Appellant, v. ROYCE MAKISHIMA, et al., Appellees. /
No. C-08-4375 MMC ORDER DENYING APPELLANT'S MOTION FOR APPOINTMENT OF COUNSEL; DENYING MOTION TO SEAL; GRANTING REQUEST FOR EXTENSION OF TIME
United States District Court
Before the Court are three motions filed December 5, 2008, by appellant Grace Miles ("Miles"): (1) "Motion Requesting Appointment of Counsel," (2) "Motion to Proceed In Forma Pauperis under Seal,"1 and (3) "Request for Extension of Time to File Brief." Having read and considered the papers filed in support of the motions, the Court finds the matters appropriate for decision thereon and rules as follows.2 1. Miles's "Motion Requesting Appointment of Counsel" is hereby DENIED, for the reason that Miles has failed to show "exceptional circumstances." See Terrell v. Brewer, 935 F.2d 1015, 1017 (9th Cir. 1990).
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28
2. Miles's "Motion to Proceed In Forma Pauperis under Seal" is hereby DENIED, for the reason that Miles has failed to file a declaration establishing that her motion to proceed in forma pauperis is sealable. See Civ. L.R. 79-5(b)(1). If Miles wishes the Court to consider her motion to proceed in forma pauperis, she shall file such motion in the public record. 3 3. Good cause having been shown, Miles's "Request for Extension of Time to File Brief," by which Miles seeks an extension of no less than 60 days for purposes of filing her opening brief, is hereby GRANTED. Miles shall serve and file her opening brief no later than February 20, 2009. Defendants shall serve and file their brief no later than twenty days after service of Miles's brief. Miles shall serve and file her reply brief no later than ten days after service of defendants' brief. IT IS SO ORDERED.
Dated: December 15, 2008
MAXINE M. CHESNEY United States District Judge
The Court notes, however, that no fee is due in the instant action, as Miles paid the filing fee in the Bankruptcy Court. 2
