IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS
ANTHONY NEAL REEVES,
Case No. 4:14CV00591 KGB/BD
CARL JOHNSON, et al.
The summons issued for Defendant Dr. Carl Johnson has been returned
unexecuted by the United States Marshal Service. (Docket entry #18, #30) Even though
Mr. Reeves is proceeding pro se and in forma pauperis, it is his responsibility to provide
the Court with valid service addresses for all defendants. Lee v. Armontrout, 991 F.2d
487, 489 (8th Cir. 1993).
The Court will allow Mr. Reeves forty-five (45) days from the date of this Order to
ascertain a valid service address for Dr. Johnson and to file a “Motion for Service,” so
that service can be attempted at that address. Claims against Dr. Johnson may be
dismissed if Mr. Reeves fails to timely comply with this Order. See Fed. R. Civ. P. 4(m)
(providing that a court may sua sponte dismiss a defendant who is not served with process
within 120 days of the filing of a complaint).
IT IS SO ORDERED, this 27th day of July, 2015.
