IN THE DISTRICT COURT OF THE UNITED STATES
FOR THE MIDDLE DISTRICT OF ALABAMA
DAVID ALLEN, #150171,
CIVIL ACTION NO. 2:06-CV-1020-MHT
GWENDOLYN MOSLEY, et al.,
ORDER ON MOTION
The plaintiff filed a motion for appointment of counsel on November 15, 2006 (Court
Doc. No. 3). The court notes that the facts underlying the plaintiff’s claims for relief are
relatively simple and the law applicable to such claims is not complex. Moreover, the pleadings
filed in this case establish that the plaintiff is capable of presenting the necessary elements of his
claims to this court and fail to demonstrate that there are exceptional circumstances justifying
appointment of counsel. See Bass v. Perrin, 170 F.3d 1312, 1320 (11th Cir. 1999); Kilgo v.
Ricks, 983 F.2d 189, 193 (11th Cir. 1993); Dean v. Barber, 951 F.2d 1210, 1216 (11th Cir. 1992).
Accordingly, it is
ORDERED that the motion for appointment of counsel be and is hereby DENIED.
Done this 15th day of November, 2006.
