UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
CASE NO. 1:11-cv-01371-LJO DLB
ORDER REQUIRING DEFENDANT TO
RESPOND TO UNITED STATES
MARSHAL’S REQUEST FOR
REIMBURSEMENT OF COSTS
RESPONSE DUE WITHIN TWENTY-ONE
Plaintiff Robert Rodriguez (“Plaintiff”) is a county jail inmate proceeding pro se and in
forma pauperis in this civil rights action pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983. Pending before the Court
is a request for reimbursement submitted by the United States Marshal on January 13, 2012.
(Doc. 17.) Pursuant to Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 4(d)(2), if a defendant, without good
cause, fails to sign and return a waiver requested by a plaintiff, the Court must impose on
defendants the expenses later incurred in making service. Because Plaintiff is proceeding in
forma pauperis, service must be effected by the United States Marshal. Fed. R. Civ. P. 4(c)(3).
Defendant Tushnet has yet to respond to the Marshal’s request. Accordingly, it is HEREBY
ORDERED that Defendant is to respond to the Marshal’s request for reimbursement within
twenty-one (21) days from the date of service of this order.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
