Spivey v. Walker

February 14, 2006

RAY CHARLES SPIVEY, PLAINTIFF,
v.
ROGER E. WALKER, JR., ET AL., DEFENDANTS.



The opinion of the court was delivered by: Gilbert, District Judge

MEMORANDUM AND ORDER

Two motions are pending in this action. First is Plaintiff's motion for appointment of counsel (Doc. 3). When deciding whether to appoint counsel, the Court must first determine if a pro se litigant has made reasonable efforts to secure counsel before resorting to the courts. Jackson v. County of McLean, 953 F.2d 1070, 1072 (7th Cir. 1992). Plaintiff makes no showing that he has attempted to retain counsel. Therefore, the Court finds that appointment of counsel is not warranted. Accordingly, Plaintiff's motion for appointment of counsel is DENIED.

Second is Plaintiff's motion for transfer (Doc. 5), in which he asks the Court to have him transferred from Menard. Since that motion was filed, Plaintiff submitted a change-of-address notification indicating that he is now incarcerated in the Pontiac Correctional Center. Accordingly, his motion for transfer out of Menard is now MOOT.

IT IS SO ORDERED.

J. Phil Gilbert U. S. District Judge
