UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, Plaintiff,
CHRISTOPHER CRAIG, Defendant.
MEMORANDUM AND ORDER
Kathryn H. Vratil United States District Judge.
This matter comes before the Court on defendant’s pro se Bar Complaint And Motion For Sanctions Against AUSA Sheri McCracken (Doc. #387) filed August 30, 2013. The Court overrules defendant’s pro se motion because he is represented by counsel who did not sign the motion. See United States v. Sandoval-DeLao, 283 Fed.Appx. 621, 625 (10th Cir. 2008) (no error in refusal to consider pro se motion when defendant represented by counsel); United States v. Castellon, 218 Fed.Appx. 775, 780 (10th Cir. 2007) (if criminal defendant represented by counsel, court does not accept pro se filings or allegations); United States v. McKinley, 58 F.3d 1475, 1480 (10th Cir. 1995) (no constitutional right to “hybrid form of representation”). In any event, defendant has not shown that sanctions against government counsel are appropriate in this case.
IT IS THEREFORE ORDERED that defendant’s pro se Bar Complaint And Motion For Sanctions Against AUSA Sheri McCracken (Doc. #387) filed August 30, 2013 be and hereby is OVERRULED.
