Mitchell v. Hurley
MEMORANDUM AND ORDER: IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that Petitioner's Motion for Appointment of Counsel 25 is DENIED without prejudice. Signed by District Judge John A. Ross on 1/12/2018. (CLO)
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF MISSOURI
MICKEY H. MITCHELL,
No. 4:15-CV-0654 JAR
MEMORANDUM AND ORDER
This matter is before the Court on Petitioner’s Motion for Appointment of Counsel (Doc.
No. 25). A review of the file indicates that Petitioner first requested appointment of counsel on
April 20, 2015. (Doc. No. 4.) Petitioner’s request was considered in light of relevant factors, see
Johnson v. Williams, 788 F.2d 1319, 1322-23 (8th Cir. 1986) and Nelson v. Redfield Lithograph
Printing, 728 F.2d 1003, 1004 (8th Cir. 1984), and denied without prejudice on July 29, 2015.
(Doc. No. 14.)
Upon consideration, the Court will deny Petitioner’s latest request for appointment of
counsel. The Court finds nothing in the record to cause it to reconsider its previous order denying
Petitioner’s motion for appointment of counsel. Again, this case is neither factually nor legally
complex. Moreover, Petitioner has demonstrated that he can adequately present his claims to the
IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that Petitioner’s Motion for Appointment of Counsel 
is DENIED without prejudice.
Dated this 12th day of January, 2018.
