UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT EASTERN DISTRICT OF MICHIGAN SOUTHERN DIVISION DWAYNE STRINGER, Plaintiff, Case No. 17-cv-10999 Hon. Matthew F. Leitman v. FYRE, SHIELFIED AND KING, Defendants. _______________________________________________________________________/ ORDER DENYING PLAINTIFF’S MOTIONS FOR THE APPOINTMENT OF LEGAL AID (ECF #49) AND THE APPOINTMENT OF LEGAL COUNSEL (ECF #52) Plaintiff Dwayne Stringer is a state prisoner confined at the Macomb Correctional Facility in New Haven, Michigan. He has filed numerous lawsuits in this District. On January 31, 2018, the Court dismissed this action without prejudice on the ground that Stringer failed to exhaust his administrative remedies. (See Dismissal Order, ECF #42.) At that point the case was closed. Nonetheless, on December 21, 2018, Stringer filed a motion for the appointment of legal aid and, on February 25, 2019, he filed a motion to appoint counsel. Because this case has been closed and because the Court does not believe the relief sought is appropriate at this time, Stringer’s motions for the appointment of legal aid (ECF #49) and counsel (ECF #52) are DENIED. IT IS SO ORDERED.             s/Matthew F. Leitman MATTHEW F. LEITMAN UNITED STATES DISTRICT JUDGE Dated: March 26, 2019 1 I hereby certify that a copy of the foregoing document was served upon the parties and/or counsel of record on March 26, 2019, by electronic means and/or ordinary mail. s/Holly A. Monda Case Manager (810) 341-9764 2
