Plaintiff is an inmate of the Florida Department of Corrections currently proceeding pro se. Plaintiff was initially represented by counsel, but counsel withdrew after filing Plaintiff’s pretrial documents. (Docs. 29, 31, 35, 40). The Court ordered Plaintiff to retain new counsel or inform the Court that he intends to proceed pro se within thirty days. (Doc. 40). Plaintiff was unable to obtain counsel by the deadline. (Doc. 42 at 1). Plaintiff now moves for Court-appointed counsel “or referral to pro-bono counsel.” (Docs. 42 at 3; 49).
