UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
WESTERN DISTRICT OF MICHIGAN
JAWON M. MARTIN,
Case No. 1:21-cv-980
Honorable Ray Kent
JOHN DAVIDS et al.,
ORDER LIFTING STAY AND FOR SERVICE
This is a prisoner civil rights action. The Court previously reviewed the complaint
under 28 U.S.C. § 1915A and 42 U.S.C. § 1997e(c), to determine whether it was frivolous,
malicious, failed to state a claim upon which relief could be granted or sought monetary relief
against a defendant that was immune from such relief. The Court then referred the case to the Pro
Se Prisoner Civil Rights Litigation Early Mediation Program and entered an order staying the case
for any purpose other than mediation. The case was not resolved through the early mediation
IT IS ORDERED that the stay of this proceeding that was entered to facilitate the
mediation is LIFTED.
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that the 90-day period for service set forth in
Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 4(m) shall run, starting with the date of this order.
IT IS ORDERED that the Clerk shall issue a summons for each Defendant and
send the summonses to Plaintiff with a copy of this order and one copy of the complaint and any
exhibits. Because Plaintiff is not proceeding in forma pauperis in this action, he is responsible for
service of the summons and complaint upon each Defendant. See Fed. R. Civ. P. 4.
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that each Defendant 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). After
a Defendant has filed an appearance, proceedings in this case will be governed by the Court’s
Standard Case Management Order in a Prisoner Civil Rights Case.
