WALKER V. SPECIALIZED LOAN
Plaintiff filed his pro se Complaint on July 29, 2016, ECF No.1, and made a motion to
proceed in forma pauperis ECF No. 2, on July 29, 2016. The motion was granted on October 6,
2016, ECF No. 3, and summons was issued to plaintiff on the same date. ECF No. 4. The court
has reviewed the Application and finds the plaintiff has satisfied the requirement to proceed in
pro se and that his complaint states a colorable claim against defendant. The plaintiff having
received IFP status, the complaint may now be served. Good cause appearing, IT IS ORDERED
Plaintiff’s request for leave to proceed in forma pauperis is GRANTED;
Service is now appropriate;
The Clerk of the Court shall send plaintiff one USM-285 form for each defendant,
one summons, a copy of the complaint, an appropriate form for consent to trial by a magistrate
judge, and this court’s status order;
Plaintiff is directed to supply the U.S. Marshal, within 14 days from the date this
order is filed, all information needed by the Marshal to effect service of process, and shall file a
statement with the court that said documents have been submitted to the United States Marshal.
The court anticipates that, to effect service, the U.S. Marshal will require at least:
a. One completed summons for each defendant;
b. One completed USM-285 form for each defendant;
c. One copy of the endorsed filed complaint for each defendant, with an extra
copy for the U.S. Marshal;
d. One copy of this court’s status order for each defendant; and
e. One copy of the instant order for each defendant.
In the event the U.S. Marshal is unable, for any reason whatsoever, to effectuate
service on any defendant within 90 days from the date of this order, the Marshal is directed to
report that fact, and the reasons for it, to the undersigned.
If a defendant waives service, the defendant is required to return the signed waiver
to the United States Marshal. If the Marshal has already attempted personal service, the filing of
an answer or a responsive motion will not relieve a defendant from the potential obligation to pay
the costs of service pursuant to Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 4(d)(2).
The Clerk of the Court is directed to serve a copy of this order on the U.S.
Marshal, 501 “I” Street, Sacramento, CA 95814, Tel. No. (916) 930-2030.
Plaintiff’s failure to comply with this order may result in a recommendation that
this action be dismissed pursuant to Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 41(b) and Local Rules 110
IT IS SO ORDERED.
