PAUL A. SCHMIDT, SR.; THOMAS
HUGHES; and BUCK GIBSON
Thompson filed a notice of change of address with the Court, Document
No. 17, in which he also requested a "90 day [extension] to find a lawyer." As
Thompson is nearing the 120-day limit for service of his complaint, the Court
construes this request as one for more time under Rule 4(m). For good cause,
the Court grants this request in part - Thompson must serve his complaint on
the Defendants by 1 March 2012 or it will be dismissed. FED. R. Cry. P. 4(m).
Whether or not Thompson retains a lawyer or proceeds on his own is
up to him, and the case will proceed regardless. But if Thompson decides to
proceed pro se, the Court cautions that he must comply with Local Rule
5.5(c)(2) and must familiarize himself with the Federal Rules of Civil
