UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
NORTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
United States District Court
For the Northern District of California
No. C 10-1005 SI (pr)
ORDER REGARDING UNSERVED
C/O T. MILLER,
Plaintiff filed a motion to reconsider his request for the court to order the U.S. Marshal
to serve process in this civil rights action in which the plaintiff is not proceeding in forma
pauperis. He asks that the Marshal be ordered to serve process at plaintiff's expense because he
(plaintiff) cannot find anyone else to serve process. Upon due consideration, plaintiff's motion
for reconsideration is GRANTED. (Docket # 20.) The Marshal will serve process on defendant
T. Miller at the address provided by plaintiff and plaintiff must pay for the cost of such service.
See Fed. R. Civ. P. 4(c). The Marshal may bill plaintiff directly or inform the court of the cost
of such service.
The clerk shall issue a summons and the United States Marshal shall serve, without
prepayment of fees, the summons, a copy of the complaint and a copy of all orders issued in this
case upon correctional officer T. Miller, employed at Salinas Valley State Prison.
Defendant T. Miller must file an answer or notice of appearance in this action within
thirty days of being served with process.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
Dated: September 16, 2011
