UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
__________ District of __________
Civil Action No.
NOTICE OF A LAWSUIT AND REQUEST TO WAIVE SERVICE OF A SUMMONS
(Name of the defendant or - if the defendant is a corporation, partnership, or association - an officer or agent authorized to receive service)
Why are you getting this?
A lawsuit has been filed against you, or the entity you represent, in this court under the number shown above.
A copy of the complaint is attached.
This is not a summons, or an official notice from the court. It is a request that, to avoid expenses, you waive formal
service of a summons by signing and returning the enclosed waiver. To avoid these expenses, you must return the signed
days (give at least 30 days, or at least 60 days if the defendant is outside any judicial district of the United States)
from the date shown below, which is the date this notice was sent. Two copies of the waiver form are enclosed, along with
a stamped, self-addressed envelope or other prepaid means for returning one copy. You may keep the other copy.
What happens next?
If you return the signed waiver, I will file it with the court. The action will then proceed as if you had been served
on the date the waiver is filed, but no summons will be served on you and you will have 60 days from the date this notice
is sent (see the date below) to answer the complaint (or 90 days if this notice is sent to you outside any judicial district of
the United States).
If you do not return the signed waiver within the time indicated, I will arrange to have the summons and complaint
served on you. And I will ask the court to require you, or the entity you represent, to pay the expenses of making service.
Please read the enclosed statement about the duty to avoid unnecessary expenses.
I certify that this request is being sent to you on the date below.

not be communicated to any magistrate judge or to the district judge to whom the case has been assigned.
An appeal from a judgment entered by a magistrate judge shall be taken directly to the United States court of appeals for this
judicial circuit in the same manner as an appeal from any other judgment of a district court.
