UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
CHERYL G. HARSHAW,
ORDER DIRECTING SERVICE BY THE
UNITED STATES MARSHALS SERVICE
WITHOUT PREPAYMENT OF COSTS
(Docs. 7 & 8)
Case No. 1:16-cv-00963-AWI-SKO
JACOB J. LEW, SECRETARY,
DEPARTMENT OF THE TREASURY,
The Court previously found service of the complaint appropriate. (Doc. 7.) Accordingly,
20 pursuant to Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 4(c), it is HEREBY ORDERED that:
The Clerk of the Court is directed to forward the following documents to the
United States Marshals Service:
One completed and issued summons;
One completed USM−285 form;
One copy of the First Amended Complaint filed on August 10, 2016, plus
an extra copy for the Marshals Service;
One copy of this order, plus an extra copy for the Marshals Service.
Within ten (10) days from the date of this order, the Marshals Service is directed to
notify the defendant of the commencement of this action and to request a waiver of
service in accordance with the provisions of Fed. R. Civ. P. 4(d) and 28 U.S.C. §
The Marshals Service shall file returned waiver of service as well as any request for
a waiver of service that is returned as undelivered as soon as it is received.
If a waiver of service is not returned by the defendant within sixty (60) days of the
date of mailing the request for waiver, the Marshals Service shall:
Personally serve process and a copy of this order upon the defendant
pursuant to Rule 4 of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure and 28 U.S.C. §
Within ten (10) days after personal service is effected, the Marshals Service
shall file the return of service for the defendant, along with evidence of any
attempts to secure a waiver of service of process and of the costs
subsequently incurred in effecting service on said defendant. Said costs
shall be enumerated on the USM−285 form and shall include the costs
incurred by the Marshals Service for photocopying additional copies of the
summons and complaint and for preparing new USM−285 forms, if
defendant in accordance with the provisions of Fed. R. Civ. P. 4(d)(2).
Costs of service will be taxed against the personally served
If the defendant waives service, he/she is required to return the signed waiver
to the Marshals Service. The filing of an answer or a responsive motion does
not relieve defendant of this requirement, and the failure to return the signed
waivers may subject defendant to an order to pay the costs of service pursuant
to Fed. R. Civ. P. 4(d)(2).
IT IS SO ORDERED.
