WOODS, et al., (ECF No. 14) Defendants. 13 14 15 16 Plaintiff James Millner is proceeding pro se in this civil action filed on August 15, 2016. 17 On August 24, 2017, the Court issued an order granting Plaintiff’s motion to have the 18 U.S. Marshal effect service of process on Defendants Wood and Hashem, (ECF No. 13), and 19 issued an order directing the Marshal to serve those defendants, (ECF No. 14). The order was 20 based on Plaintiff’s representations that he had attempted to serve such Defendants, but had been 21 unsuccessful. 22 After such orders were issued, on August 24, 2017, Defendant Woods filed an answer to 23 Plaintiff’s first amended complaint. No defense of lack of proper service was raised. (ECF No. 24 15.) 25 Accordingly, the Court finds that service by the U.S. Marshal on Defendant Woods is no 26 longer needed in this matter. Based on the foregoing, it is HEREBY ORDERED that: 27 1. The Court’s order directing service by the U.S. Marshal on Defendant Woods and 28 Hashem is partially vacated; 1 2. 1 The U.S. Marshal is relieved of the duty to effect service of process on Defendant 2 Woods; 3. 3 The order directing the U.S. Marshal to effect service of process on Defendant 4 Hashem remains in full force and effect; and 4. 5 The Clerk of the Court is directed to provide a copy of this order to the U.S. 6 Marshal to assist with service of process. 7 8 IT IS SO ORDERED. 9 Dated: August 28, 2017 UNITED STATES MAGISTRATE JUDGE 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 2
