1 2 3 4 UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT 5 DISTRICT OF NEVADA 6 7 8 9 10 11 BARBARA RUTH CRAM, ) ) Plaintiff, ) ) vs. ) ) US INTERIOR, ) ) Defendant. ) __________________________________________) Case No. 2:16-cv-02870-JAD-CWH ORDER 12 13 Presently before the court is pro se Plaintiff Barbara Ruth Cram’s Motion to Inform About 14 Notice of Appeal (ECF No. 16), filed on May 5, 2017. In this motion, Ms. Cram states that “she 15 needs the notice of appeal to include all points and authorities that you may have. And to include 16 hearing the whole case here.” (Id. at 1.) It is unclear to the court exactly what relief Ms. Cram is 17 requesting in this motion, but it appears to relate to her appeal. 18 Also before the court is Ms. Cram’s Motion for Counsel (ECF No. 20), filed on May 8, 19 2017. Ms. Cram requests the appointment of an attorney, stating that “I was just raped hundred of 20 times and can’t pay. Can you assist me. I’m disheveled in my person and can’t get dressed until 21 midday. I can’t get torture out of my mind and it was plentiful. I can’t continue pro se.” (Id. at 1- 22 2.) Given that this case is closed and that Ms. Cram filed a notice of appeal (ECF No. 15) before 23 requesting an attorney, the court understands Ms. Cram to be requesting an attorney for the purpose 24 of her appeal. 25 On August 15, 2017, the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit dismissed Ms. 26 Cram’s appeal as frivolous. (Order (ECF No. 29).) Given that Ms. Cram’s appeal has been 27 dismissed, the court will deny her pending motions as moot. 28 /// 1 2 3 4 IT IS THEREFORE ORDERED that Plaintiff Barbara Ruth Cram’s Motion to Inform About Notice of Appeal (ECF No. 16) is DENIED as moot. IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that Plaintiff’s Motion for Counsel (ECF No. 20) is DENIED as moot. 5 6 DATED: August 23, 2017 7 8 9 ______________________________________ C.W.
