Filing 23

ENTRY DISCUSSING MOTION FOR TIME TO FILE NOTICE OF APPEAL AND MOTION FOR COUNSEL - Any notice of appeal must be filed by Monday, August 17, 2015. Form 1 in the Federal Rules of Appellate Procedure's Appendix of Forms is a suggested form of a notice of appeal. See Fed. R. App. P. 3(c)(5). This Form is attached for the petitioner's reference. The deadline for filing a notice of appeal can only be extended if excusable neglect or good cause is shown. Fed. R. App. P. 4(a)(5)(A ), (C). These circumstances are not present because the petitioner still has sufficient time to file a timely notice of appeal. Accordingly, the motion for extension of time [dkt. 22 ] is DENIED. The petitioner's request for an attorne y to appeal his motion pursuant to § 2255 is DENIED. This Court is not in a position to appoint counsel to represent the petitioner on appeal. See Johnson v. Chandler, 487 F.3d 1037 (7th Cir. 2007) ("The appointment stops at the do or of the district court."). Instead, the petitioner should direct his request for counsel to the Seventh Circuit after filing his Notice of Appeal. Copy Mailed. Signed by Judge Tanya Walton Pratt on 7/24/2015.
