Appellant Joy Horan seeks leave to proceed in forma 18 pauperis. (ECF No. 1.)

Appellant has not demonstrated that counsel should be appointed at this time. 22 The Court will direct that a transcript of the trial be provided to Appellant in light of her 23 indigent and pro se status. The transcript will also assist the Court in addressing this 24 appeal. A separate order will be issued to set the briefing schedule. 25 26 27 28 It is therefore ordered that Appellant’s application to proceed in forma pauperis (ECF No. 1) is granted.
