ORDER TO SHOW CAUSE
Case No. 16-cv-06882-KAW
On November 30, 2016, Plaintiff James L. Dye filed the instant suit against Defendant
United States Government, asserting an injury based on a fall he suffered at the Oakland federal
building. (Dkt. No. 1 at 4.) Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 4(m) states:
If a defendant is not served within 90 days after the complaint is
filed, the court -- on motion or on its own after notice to the plaintiff
-- must dismiss the action without prejudice against that defendant
or order that service be made within a specified time. But if the
plaintiff shows good cause for the failure, the court must extend the
time for service for an appropriate period.
As of the date of this order, Plaintiff has yet to file a proof of service that the complaint has
been served on Defendant. Accordingly, Plaintiff is ORDERED TO SHOW CAUSE, in writing,
by no later than June 16, 2017, why Plaintiff's case should not be dismissed for failure to serve the
complaint. The initial case management conference set for May 30, 2017 is CONTINUED to
September 12, 2017 at 1:30 p.m. The case management conference statement is due by September
IT IS SO ORDERED.
Dated: May 26, 2017
