IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF MISSISSIPPI
MICHAEL AMOS, et al.
CIVIL ACTION NO. 4:20-CV-7-SA-JMV
NATHAN BURL CAIN, et al.
DARRAN LANG, et al.
CIVIL ACTION NO. 4:20-CV-30-SA-JMV
JEWORSKI MALLET, et al.
Now before the Court is Plaintiff Kedric Steele’s Motion for TRO/Preliminary Injunction
. Steele filed the Motion  in his pro se capacity, despite being represented by counsel.
Although all parties in federal courts possess a statutory right to “plead and conduct their
own cases personally or by counsel,” this Court has previously prohibited parties who are
represented by counsel from also filing pro se pleadings. 28 U.S.C. § 1654; see Howard v. Epps,
2010 WL 2640231, at *1 (N.D. Miss. June 28, 2010); see also U.S. v. Hodges, 2016 WL 7339884,
at *1 (E.D. Tex. Nov. 9, 2016) (noting, in a criminal case, that a defendant does not have the right
to hybrid representation).
Because Steele is represented by counsel, the Court will not consider his Pro Se Motion
. That Motion  is hereby denied without prejudice. If Steele elects to proceed pro se in
this action, he may refile the Motion or counsel may file such a Motion on his behalf.
SO ORDERED, this the 10th day of January, 2022.
