IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE WESTERN DISTRICT OF PENNSYLVANIA
February 28, 2007
TIM PURCELL, PLAINTIFF,
THE PENNSYLVANIA DEPARTMENT OF CORRECTIONS, ET AL.; DEFENDANTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Magistrate Judge Lisa Pupo Lenihan
Plaintiff in this action has filed numerous requests for the court to appoint counsel to represent him in this matter. Although previous requests for counsel had been denied, the case is now postured for trial. The Court believes that if counsel is willing to accept this case on a pro bono basis, it is appropriate to assign counsel for purposes of trial only. Therefore,
IT IS ORDERED this 28th day of February, 2007, that Michael A. Comber, Esq., Jerome J. Kalina, Esq., of the law firm of Jones Day, are appointed as counsel for Plaintiff on a pro bono basis for trial only.
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that no further discovery is to be done in this case without good cause and leave of court.
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that a status conference is to take place before the undersigned on March 19, 2007 at 3 pm in courtroom 7B.
