SMITH v. NIKE RETAIL SERVICES

February 25, 2004.

KEITH SMITH, et al., Plaintiffs,
v.
NIKE RETAIL SERVICES, INC., etc., Defendant



The opinion of the court was delivered by: MILTON SHADUR, Senior District Judge

MEMORANDUM ORDER

Keith Smith ("Smith") and Ria McDougal ("McDougal") filed their employment discrimination Complaint in this case pro se. Although this Court promptly granted them leave to proceed in forma pauperis based on their showing of inability to pay the filing fee, it was necessary to defer their contemporaneous Motion for Appointment of Counsel ("Motion") because they (like all too many pro se litigants) had failed to provide the required information as to the efforts they had made to obtain counsel on their own.

Now Smith (acting on behalf of McDougal as well as himself) has submitted another Motion, this time coupled with detailed information about numerous lawyers and law offices with whom or which they have communicated about possible representation. But a substantial number of the lawyers and firms listed, according to Smith's filing, have not yet reached a decision about possible representation — indeed, some follow-up discussions along those lines are currently active. Accordingly the Motion is denied for Page 2 the present as to both Smith and McDougal, but obviously without prejudice to its potential renewal if it were to turn out that all of their efforts have gone for naught.
