Sylvester v. Chatman
ORDER denying 10 Motion to Appoint Counsel. Ordered by U.S. Mag Judge Charles H Weigle on 4/3/2012. (mgb)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE MIDDLE DISTRICT OF GEORGIA
CEDRIC TAYLOR, Warden,
NO. 5:10-CV-464 (MTT)
Proceedings Under 28 U.S.C. §2254
Before the U.S. Magistrate Judge
Before the Court is Petitioner Gaspar Sylvester’s Motion to Appoint Counsel asking that he
be provided with legal representation in the above-captioned §2254 proceeding. Upon review of the
instant petition, the Court finds that the issues set forth therein are properly raised and adequately
set forth Petitioner's contentions. They are not so complex as to require appointment of legal
counsel to represent Petitioner’s legal interests at this time.
The Court, on its own motion, will consider appointing legal counsel for the Petitioner if and
when it becomes apparent that legal assistance is required in order to avoid prejudice to his rights.
Certainly, if an evidentiary hearing is required, counsel will be provided for the Petitioner.
Accordingly, at the present time, Petitioner's motion for appointment of legal counsel is
SO ORDERED, this 3rd day of April, 2012.
