Sedore #210661 v. Burt et al
ORDER REGARDING SERVICE: the Clerk is to arrange for service of this order and the complaint upon the defendants; signed by Magistrate Judge Ray Kent (Magistrate Judge Ray Kent, fhw)
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE WESTERN DISTRICT OF MICHIGAN
Case No. 1:16-cv-903
Honorable Paul L. Maloney
SHERRY BURT et al.,
ORDER FOR SERVICE
This is a prisoner civil rights action. The Court has conducted an initial review of the
complaint pursuant to 28 U.S.C. §1915A and 42 U.S.C. § 1997e(c), to determine whether it is
frivolous, malicious, fails to state a claim upon which relief can be granted or seeks monetary relief
against a defendant that is immune from such relief. Upon initial review, the Court concludes that
the complaint is not subject to dismissal for any of the reasons listed above. Therefore:
IT IS ORDERED that the Clerk shall issue summons and return them to the Plaintiff.
Because Plaintiff is not proceeding in forma pauperis in this action, he is responsible for service of
summons and complaint upon Defendants. See FED. R. CIV. P. 4.
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that Defendants shall file an appearance of counsel
(individual Defendants may appear pro se if they do not have counsel) within 21 days of service or,
in the case of a waiver of service, 60 days after the waiver of service was sent. Until so ordered by
the Court, no Defendant is required to file an answer or motion in response to the complaint, and no
default will be entered for failure to do so. See 42 U.S.C. § 1997e(g)(1).
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that Defendants shall reply to the complaint by way of
answer, motion to dismiss, or motion for summary judgment within the time allowed by law. See
42 U.S.C. § 1997e(g)(2).
Dated: October 5, 2016
