McCain v. Walsh
ORDER denying 10 Motion to Appoint Counsel. Signed by Hon. Leslie G. Foschio on 8/11/2010. (SDW)
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT W ESTERN DISTRICT OF NEW YORK ADRIAN McCAIN, Plaintiff, v. 09-CV-262F NURSE KATHERN WALSH, Defendant. ORDER
By papers filed October 29, 2009 (Doc. No. 10), Plaintiff moves for assignment of counsel. However, as Plaintiff was denied in forma pauperis status on June 6, 2009 by order of Hon. Charles J. Siragusa (Doc. No. 7), this court lacks authority to assign counsel pursuant to 21 U.S.C. § 1915(e)(1). See Cochran v. Thomaides, 2006 WL 2689579 *2 (Sep't 19, 2006 N.D.N.Y.) (assignment of counsel unavailable to pro se civil rights plaintiff absent granting plaintiff in forma pauperis status). Plaintiff has not renewed his request for in forma pauperis status. Accordingly, Plaintiff's motion for assignment of counsel is DENIED without prejudice. SO ORDERED. /s/ Leslie G. Foschio ________________________________ LESLIE G.
