IN THE DISTRICT COURT OF THE UNITED STATES
FOR THE MIDDLE DISTRICT OF ALABAMA
EDDIE JOE SEAGO, SR.,
CIVIL ACTION NO. 1:06-CV-925-MHT
HOUSTON COUNTY JAIL, et al.,
ORDER ON MOTION
The plaintiff filed a motion for appointment of counsel on October 12, 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 (11 Cir. 1999); Kilgo v. Ricks,
983 F.2d 189, 193 (11 Cir. 1993); Dean v. Barber, 951 F.2d 1210, 1216 (11 Cir. 1992).
Accordingly, it is
ORDERED that the motion for appointment of counsel be and is hereby DENIED.
Done this 16 day of October, 2006.
