This matter is before the Court on the February 6, 2015 Recommendation by United States Magistrate Judge Michael E.

See 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1)(B); Fed.R.Civ.P. 72(b).
The Court has reviewed the Pilot Program to Implement a Civil Pro Bono Panel, Section III(B)(3). In accordance with D.C.COLO.LAttyR 15 of the U.S. District Court’s Local Rules, the Court hereby determines that Plaintiff Miller merits appointment of counsel drawn from the Civil Pro Bono Panel. The Court is satisfied that the four factors and considerations listed in Section III(B)(3) have been met. Therefore, the Court ADOPTS the Recommendation of Magistrate Judge Hegarty as the findings and conclusions of this Court.
Accordingly, it is ORDERED that the Recommendation of the United States Magistrate Judge (Doc. # 213) is AFFIRMED and ADOPTED. It is
FURTHER ORDERED that the Clerk shall select, notify, and appoint counsel to represent the unrepresented party in this civil matter. The unrepresented party is advised that the clerk will select counsel from the Panel; however, there is no guarantee that Panel members will undertake representation in every case selected as part of the Pilot Program. The Court cautions that the Plaintiff is responsible for all scheduled matters, including hearings, depositions, motions, and trial.
