This case is scheduled for a jury trial on May 8-9, 2023. ECF Nos. 48, 51. The case is before me upon consent of the parties. ECF No. 39. Plaintiff, a prisoner in the custody of the Florida Department of
Corrections, has been proceeding pro se in this civil rights case filed under 42 U.S.C. § 1983. He was granted leave to proceed in forma pauperis. ECF No. 5. Recently, the parties were directed to submit their pre-trial
documents. ECF Nos. 40, 42, 48, 51. This pre-trial process has revealed to the Court that Plaintiff would be better served if he were represented by counsel as he has shown difficulty in complying with the pre-trial Orders.
