The case has been referred to a panel of the court pursuant to Rule 9(a), Rules of the Sixth Circuit. Upon examination of the record and plaintiff's brief, this panel unanimously agrees that oral argument is not needed. Fed. R. App. P. 34(a).

Plaintiff sought unspecified compensation from his court-appointed trial attorney. The district court dismissed the action as frivolous under 28 U.S.C. § 1915(d).
