Recently, the US District Court amended Local Rule 83.10 in an effort to provide more pro bono resources to assist the many self-represented litigants, who are also often incarcerated, bring cases to the court. According to the rule, “any member of the bar who has appeared as counsel of record in at least one civil action in [federal] court since January 1, 2015,” will be asked to take pro bono assignments.
