Schaeffer v. Correctional Officer

IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE WESTERN DISTRICT OF PENNSYLVANIA


June 26, 2007

STONEY LEE SCHAEFFER, PLAINTIFF,
v.
CORRECTIONAL OFFICER, SGT. W. SCHAMP, CORRECTIONAL OFFICER, OFFICER - CYR, DEFENDANTS.

The opinion of the court was delivered by: Arthur J. Schwab United States District Judge

ORDER OF COURT

After careful consideration of petitioner's "Appeal for Counsel" and Notice of Appeal, and of the comprehensive and well-reasoned opinion and order of United States Magistrate Judge Lisa Pupo Lenihan denying petitioner's motion for appointment of counsel, this Court agrees with her thorough analysis of petitioner's request for counsel in light of Tabron v. Grace, 6 F.3d 147 (3d Cir. 1993), cert. denied 510 U.S. 1196 (1994) and 28 U.S.C. § 1915(d), and in light of the practical difficulty in finding willing, qualified pro bono counsel for pro se litigants in this area of the law.

The Court notes that petitioner is sorely mistaken in his belief that "defendants have Counsel at free of charge by the Court." (doc. no. 17 at 3). This Court has not appointed counsel for defendants in this or any civil rights or prisoner's rights case.

The Order of June 6, 2007 (doc. no. 16) is HEREBY AFFIRMED.
