"The right to self-representation is a right of high standing, not simply a practice to be…dishonored by a Court depending on it's assessment of the desiderata of a particular case" O'Reilly v. New York Times, Co., 692 F. 2d 863, 867 (2d Cir. 1982)

==========================
I am not a lawyer. It would not be wise to use anything I say as legal advise. Check for yourself.

Traguth v. Zuck, 710 F. 2d 90, 91 (2nd cir. 1983); “Implicit in the right to self-representation is the obligation on the part of the Court to make reasonable allowances to protect Pro Se litigants from inadvertent forfeiture of important rights because of their lack of legal training." And “the Court's duty is even broader in the case of a Pro Se defendant who finds himself in court against his will with little time to learn the intricacies of civil procedure and law." See 28 U.S.C.A. 1654.
