For the reasons stated on the reverse Memorandum, Opinion, Order, Bobby Trusty's petition for attorney of record replaced is denied.
MEMORANDUM, OPINION, ORDER
Bobby N. Trusty, a federal prisoner, has filed a "petition for attorney of record replaced" in which he represents he is unable to correspond with his counsel in his long completed criminal case in this court. He desires that a new attorney be appointed to represent him regarding the alleged lack of medical treatment in the Bureau of Prisons. Any potential lawsuit in this regard would be in a new civil action, and his appointed attorney in his criminal case is not under any obligation to continue his representation for that purpose. This court denies the motion to appoint new counsel. Any potential action against the Bureau of Prisons most appropriately lies in the jurisdiction of the federal court where Trusty is confined, and he may request counsel once any suit is filed.
