Marvin Hill, Appellant, v. United States Parole Commission, et al, 946 F.2d 1564 (D.C. Cir. 1991)

Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit - 946 F.2d 1564 (D.C. Cir. 1991) May 16, 1991

Before SILBERMAN, BUCKLEY and STEPHEN F. WILLIAMS, Circuit Judges.

ORDER

PER CURIAM.


Upon consideration of the motion for appointment of counsel, it is

ORDERED that the motion be denied. Except in a criminal trial and on appeal therefrom, appointment of counsel is exceptional and is wholly unwarranted when appellant has not demonstrated any likelihood of success on the merits. See D.C. Circuit Handbook of Practice and Internal Procedures 29 (1987). It is

FURTHER ORDERED, on the court's own motion, that the district court's orders filed July 11 and August 6, 1990 be vacated and that the case be remanded for further proceedings consistent with Chatman-Bey v. Thornburgh, 864 F.2d 804, 814 n. 10 (D.C. Cir. 1988) (en banc) (transfer to district of confinement "uniquely appropriate" in habeas cases where court lacks jurisdiction over petitioner's custodian).

The Clerk is directed to withhold issuance of the mandate herein until seven days after disposition of any timely petition for rehearing. See D.C. Cir. Rule 15.
