(IN CHAMBERS) ORDER TO SHOW CAUSE RE: TIME LIMIT FOR
On December 1, 2016, the Court ordered that the Clerk of Court may issue Summons
and that Plaintiff may proceed with service of process. (ECF Nos. 10, 11). Plaintiff was
advised that the Summons and Complaint must be served upon Defendants within 90 days of
the date of this Order pursuant to Rule 4(m), and was ordered to file proof of service within 15
days of the date of service. (ECF No. 10). Plaintiff was further advised that failure to serve
Defendants within 90 days may result in the dismissal of the action in whole or against
unserved Defendants for failure to prosecute, unless Plaintiff can show good cause for
extending the 90day deadline for service.
As of the date of this order, Plaintiff has not filed any proof of service, request for
extension of the deadline for service, or any other document that indicates his intent to
prosecute this action. Therefore, Plaintiff is ORDERED TO SHOW CAUSE on or before April
14, 2017, why this action should not be dismissed for failure to prosecute and failure to
effectuate service of process.
Plaintiff is advised that failure to file a timely response to this order will
result in a recommendation that this action be dismissed for failure to prosecute
and obey court orders. See Fed. R. Civ. P. 41(b); Local Civil Rule 411. If Plaintiff no
longer wishes to pursue this action, Plaintiff may voluntarily dismiss the action pursuant to
Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 41(a) by filing a “Notice of Dismissal.” The Clerk is directed to
attach a Notice of Dismissal Form (CV009) to this Order.
