IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE DISTRICT OF NEBRASKA
REGINALD G. BAKER,
LEIGH ANN RETELSDORF, TOM
RILEY, BRENDA LEUCK, and
This matter is before the court on Plaintiff’s Motions to Appoint Counsel
(Filing No. 8 and Filing No. 13), and Motion for Extension of Time (Filing No. 12).
In Plaintiff’s Motion for Extension of Time, Plaintiff seeks additional time in which
to pay the initial partial filing fee.
On June 10, 2014, the court ordered Plaintiff to show cause within 30 days why
he is entitled to proceed in forma pauperis in this matter. (Filing No. 11.) The court
warned Plaintiff that failure to either show cause or pay the court’s filing and
administrative fees within 30 days would result in dismissal of this action without
further notice. (Id. at CM/ECF p. 2.) Accordingly,
IT IS THEREFORE ORDERED that:
Plaintiff’s Motions to Appoint Counsel (Filing No. 8 and Filing No. 13)
are denied without prejudice to reassertion until after the question of Plaintiff’s in
forma pauperis status is resolved.
Plaintiff’s Motion for an extension of time to pay the initial partial filing
fee is denied because the court has not assessed an initial partial filing fee in this case.
(Filing No. 12.)
DATED this 11th day of June, 2014.
BY THE COURT:
Richard G. Kopf
Senior United States District Judge
