United States District Court, S.D. New York
April 5, 2005.
CERTAIN UNDERWRITERS AT INTEREST IN LLOYD'S, LONDON Plaintiff,
BARTOLO TORRES, ET AL. Defendants.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: VICTOR MARRERO, District Judge
DECISION AND ORDER
Pro se defendant Natalio Conde ("Conde") has applied for
the Court to request counsel to represent him in this matter. The
threshold consideration in ruling on such an application is the
showing of some merit. See Cooper v. A. Sargenti Co.,
877 F.2d 170, 172-74 (2d Cir. 1989). Conde has not yet met this
standard at this stage in the proceeding. If Conde can make such
a showing, he may reapply for appointment of counsel.
Accordingly, his application is denied without prejudice.
