IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF ILLINOIS
March 20, 2007
DWAYNE GRIFFIN, PLAINTIFF,
ROD BLAGOJEVICH, ET AL., DEFENDANTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Murphy, Chief District Judge
Three motions are pending in the action. Two seek appointment of counsel (Docs. 8, 9), but the Court previously denied a request for appointment of counsel, finding that Plaintiff had made no showing of attempts to retain counsel on his own (see Docs. 3, 7). Neither of the instant motions (Docs. 8, 9) remedies that shortcoming; accordingly, each of these motions is DENIED. In his motions seeking law library access (Docs. 5, 9), Plaintiff states that he needs access to prepare his complaint and request for appointment of counsel. A complaint and such motion have been filed in this action so there is no need for such an order. Accordingly, these motions are DENIED.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
G. PATRICK MURPHY Chief United States District Judge
