IN THE DISTRICT COURT OF THE UNITED STATES
FOR THE MIDDLE DISTRICT OF ALABAMA
LEANDER CALHOUN, #198389,
CIVIL ACTION NO. 2:06-CV-613-MEF
CENTRAL REVIEW BOARD, DEPT. OF )
CORRECTIONS, et al.,
ORDER ON MOTION
The plaintiff filed a motion for appointment of counsel on July 28, 2006 (Court Doc. No.
5). 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 2nd day of August, 2006.
