Date Filed#Document Text
July 23, 2013 12 Opinion or Order of the Court ENTRY - Plaintiff's 8 Motion for Leave to Proceed in forma pauperis is GRANTED. To the extent Mr. Covington's claim that his custody is unlawful is not frivolous, such a claim is not appropriate in this case. A request for release fro m confinement must be brought in an appropriate collateral challenge and cannot become an adjunct of a civil rights lawsuit. Given the dismissal of this action, the motion to appoint counsel [Dkt. 9 ] is DENIED. Judgment consistent with this Entry shall now be issued. Signed by Judge Tanya Walton Pratt on 7/23/2013. Copy Mailed. (JD)
