UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
DISTRICT OF NEVADA
DENNIS WAYNE ELMORE, et al.
ERIC HOLDER, et al.,
Case No. 2:11-cv-00282-JCM-GWF
This matter is before the Court on Plaintiffs’ Motion to Extend Time (#6), filed July 15,
Plaintiffs request an extension of time to complete service pursuant to Federal Rule of Civil
Procedure 4(i)(4). Under the rule referenced by Plaintiffs, “[t]he court must allow a party a
reasonable time to cure its failure to: (A) serve a person required to be served under Rule 4(i)(2), if
the party has served either the United States attorney or the Attorney General of the United States;
or (B) serve the United States under Rule 4(i)(3), if the party has served the United States officer or
employee.” Fed. R. Civ. P. (4)(i)(4) (emphasis added). Plaintiffs have not served the United States
attorney or the Attorney General of the United States under Rule 4(i)(2). Nor have Plaintiffs served
the named United States officer or employee under Rule 4(i)(3). Thus, an extension of time under
Rule 4(i)(4) is not appropriate. Accordingly,
IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that Plaintiffs’ Motion to Extend Time (#6) is denied.
DATED this 22nd day of July, 2011.
GEORGE FOLEY, JR.
United States Magistrate Judge
