EDMUND F. BRENNAN, Magistrate Judge.

Movant, who proceeds without counsel, has filed a motion to vacate, set aside, or correct his sentence pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2255.1 ECF No. 75. The court has directed respondent to file a response to the motion and respondent has sought an extension of time to so comply. ECF Nos. 77, 87. However, after review of the file, the court has determined that the interests of justice require appointment of counsel. See 18 U.S.C. § 3006A(a)(2)(B); see also Weygandt v. Look, 718 F.2d 952, 954 (9th Cir. 1983); United States v. Duarte-Higareda, 68 F.3d 369, 370 (9th Cir. 1995).

1. The briefing schedule on movant's motion is stayed pending further order of the court and respondent's motion for an extension of time (ECF No. 87) is denied as moot.

2. The Federal Defender is appointed to represent movant.

3. The Clerk of Court is directed to serve a copy of movant's motion (ECF No. 75) and this order on zzCAEml_Appointments_Habeas@FD.org.
