UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
DISTRICT OF NEVADA
Case No. 3:13-cv-00035-MMD-VPC
On March 21, 2017, this Court denied Michelle Taylor’s counseled petition for writ
of habeas corpus pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2254 (ECF No. 49), and judgment was entered
(ECF No. 50). Taylor filed a notice of appeal with the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals (ECF
No. 51). Counsel for petitioner filed motions in this Court and the appeals court to
withdraw as counsel, and Taylor apparently filed pro se motions in both courts as well
(see ECF Nos. 53, 55, 56, 60). The Ninth Circuit has now granted a motion to substitute
counsel, and the Federal Public Defender has been appointed to represent Taylor on
It is therefore ordered that the motions to withdraw as counsel by Richard Cornell
(ECF No. 53) and Donald Bergerson (ECF No. 56) are granted.
It is further ordered that petitioner’s application for leave to proceed in forma
pauperis (ECF No. 55) and motion for appointment of counsel (ECF No. 60) are denied
DATED THIS 8th day of February 2018.
