Frederick JACKSON, Plaintiff-Appellant,v.UNITED STATES POSTAL SERVICE, Defendant-Appellee.
United States Court of Appeals, Ninth Circuit.
Submitted Sept. 14, 1989.* Decided Nov. 3, 1989.As Amended Dec. 5, 1989.
Before BROWNING, ALARCON, and CYNTHIA HOLCOMB. HALL, JJ., Circuit Judges.
We review the district court's denial of appointment of counsel for abuse of discretion. Bradshaw v. Zoological Soc'y, 662 F.2d 1301, 1318 (9th Cir. 1981). Although appellant appears to have made some effort to obtain counsel and has shown he lacks the financial resources to do so, he has not made a sufficient showing as to the merits of his claim. See id. Conclusory allegations of fraud and constitutional violations do not suffice to state a meritorious Title VII claim. The court did not abuse its discretion.
