This court recently entered an order requesting the parties to advise the court whether they
would both consent to have the case tried in Columbia, South Carolina, rather than Charleston, South
Carolina. The plaintiff has responded to this court’s directive by again requesting appointment of
As the court explained in its previous order (ECF No. 47), the court intends to appoint
counsel for the plaintiff. However, the location of the trial will determine whether this court
appoints an attorney from Columbia or Charleston.
For this reason, the court once again directs the plaintiff to advise the court whether he will
consent to have the venue of this case transferred from Charleston, South Carolina to Columbia,
South Carolina. This means that the trial will take place in the courthouse in Columbia, and the jury
will be selected from the jury box that serves Columbia.
Plaintiff’s response is due 10 days from the date of this order.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
