Annotate this Case
U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit - 907 F.2d 150 (6th Cir. 1990) June 27, 1990

Before KEITH and NATHANIEL R. JONES, Circuit Judges and ENGEL, Senior Circuit Judge.


This matter is before the court upon consideration of the appellees' motion to dismiss the appeal for lack of subject matter jurisdiction. The appellant has not responded.

It appears from the record that the district court entered an order on February 15, 1990, denying the motion to be appointed as counsel filed by appellant and other inmates at the Kentucky State Reformatory. The appellant has appealed from that order. This motion is comparable to an order denying appointment of counsel. An order denying appointment of counsel is not appealable. Henry v. City of Detroit Manpower Dep't, 763 F.2d 757, 764 (6th Cir.) (en banc), cert. denied, 474 U.S. 1036 (1985).

Accordingly, it is ORDERED that the motion to dismiss the appeal be, and it hereby is, granted. The appeal is dismissed for lack of jurisdiction. Rule 8(a) (1), Rules of the Sixth Circuit.
