This matter is before the court on Plaintiff’s “Motion to Request Service” (Doc. No. 6, filed Aug.
27, 2014) as well as the handwritten Summonses that Plaintiff filed with the court (Doc. No. 16,
filed Nov. 5, 2014). Because Plaintiff has been granted leave to proceed in forma pauperis (see
Doc. No. 4), he is not required to serve Defendants. Instead, Plaintiff is entitled to have the
United States Marshals Service serve Defendants or, alternatively, obtain a waiver of service
from Defendants, see 28 U.S.C. § 1915(d). Accordingly, Plaintiff’s Motion to Request Service
(Doc. No. 6) is DENIED and Plaintiff is advised that the Clerk of Court will not providing him
with signed copies of the Summonses.
