IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF ILLINOIS
February 1, 2007
RONALD D. BROWN, INMATE #A15829, PLAINTIFF,
ROGER WALKER, JR., ET AL., DEFENDANTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Murphy, Chief District Judge
Currently pending before the Court are Plaintiff's motions to proceed on the original complaint (Doc. 3) and for appointment of counsel (Doc. 6).
In the motion to proceed on the original complaint, as best the Court can tell, Plaintiff anticipates filing an amended complaint at some point in the future, but asks that the Court make its initial review upon the original complaint already submitted. This motion (Doc. 3) is GRANTED. The Court will proceed with its threshold review of the case upon the complaint filed.
Plaintiff also seeks appointment of counsel. Until the Court has completed a preliminary review of the complaint, see 28 U.S.C. § 1915A, this request is premature. Therefore, the motion for appointment of counsel (Doc. 6) is DENIED without prejudice. Once the Court has completed that preliminary review, Plaintiff may renew his request at that time.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
G. PATRICK MURPHY Chief United States District Judge
