IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF ILLINOIS
November 30, 2005
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, PLAINTIFF,
TRAVIS NORMAN, DEFENDANT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: David Rherndon United States District Court
Before the Court are two motions submitted by Defendant Travis Norman ("Defendant"): a motion for the appointment of new counsel to replace Defendant's current attorney, Gordon Freese (Doc. 200), and a motion to proceed pro se (Doc. 208). With regard to Defendant's first motion, the Court GRANTS Defendant's request to withdraw Attorney Gordon Freese as attorney of record, and APPOINTS Attorney Justin A. Kuehn, 310 E. Washington St., Belleville, Illinois 62220, to represent Defendant. With regard to Defendant's second motion, the Court, particularly in light of the language in Defendant's motion,*fn1 assumes that Defendant desires to be represented by coun sel in this matter, but grew anxious about the amount of time it took the Court to find new counsel.*fn2 Therefore, the Court DENIES Defendant's motion to proceed pro se. (Doc. 208.)
IT IS SO ORDERED.
