IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF ILLINOIS
May 29, 2009
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, PLAINTIFF,
KENNETH KIRKLAND, DEFENDANT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Reagan, District Judge
On May 29, 2009, Kirkland filed a motion for new counsel indicating that he is unhappy with the Federal Public Defenders currently representing him (Doc. 96). This Court has no jurisdiction to rule on Kirkland's motion, however, because Kirkland's case is currently on appeal before the Seventh Circuit. Any requests for the appointment of new counsel in his case should be directed to the Seventh Circuit.
Accordingly, the Court DISMISSES Kirkland's motion for new counsel (Doc. 96).
IT IS SO ORDERED.
MICHAEL J. REAGAN United States District Judge
