UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
RAUL ARELLANO, JR.,
Case No.: 3:14-cv-2404-GPC-KSC
ORDER GRANTING PLAINTIFF’S
MOTION FOR ADDRESS
SAN DIEGO, COUNTY OF, et al.,
[Doc. No. 192]
Presently before the Court is a document titled “Motion for Address” wherein
Plaintiff Raul Arellano, Jr. requests therein that the Court provide him with the address of
the United States Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of California so that he may
effectuate service of his Complaint upon the United States as a defendant. Doc. No. 192.
Good cause appearing, the Court GRANTS plaintiff’s request.
On November 9, 2020, the Honorable Gonzalo P. Curiel of this District issued an
order requiring plaintiff to serve a copy of his Second Amended Complaint on “each
remaining Defendant,” including the United States (the “Order”). Doc. No. 189 at 6. 1
As set forth in the District Court’s Order, because plaintiff is proceeding pro se and in forma pauperis,
he is to complete a Form 285 for each defendant “as completely and accurately as possible.” Order at 6.
The form(s) will then be returned to the United States Marshal who will serve the summons and complaint
upon each defendant. Id. at 6-7.
