CHIEF MURL HARPUM, et al. Defendants. No. C 08-00016 SBA ORDER [Docket No. 33] Before the Court is Alan Cooke's Ex Parte Motion to Add Chief Investigator Mike Hislop of the Humboldt County District Attorney Office to Complaint as Defendant (the "Motion") [Docket No. 33]. Hislop was allegedly employed by the Eureka Police Department at the time of the incident giving rise to this matter, and was involved in this incident.1 See id. Because no defendant has answered the initial complaint filed in this matter, Cooke may amend his complaint once without leave of Court. Fed. R. Civ. P. 15(a)(1)(A). As Cooke has not yet amended his complaint, he may do so without leave of Court. See id. Nonetheless, until he files a First Amended Complaint ("FAC"), the Court is unable to address his request, as an in forma pauperis plaintiff, for the Court to order the United States Marshall to serve this FAC on Hislop. See Mot. at 1-2. The Court DENIES the Motion as moot. IT IS SO ORDERED.
