P. 4 (m ), which states in pertinent part: If a defendant is not served within 120 days after the complaint is filed, the c o u rt o n motion or on its own after notice to the plaintiffmust dismiss the a c tio n without prejudice against that defendant or order that service be made w ith in a specified time. But if the plaintiff shows good cause for the failure, th e court must extend the time for service for an appropriate period. T h e court file shows that this case was filed on March 12, 2007, and the 120-day p e rio d has expired. Although the matter was settled as to a third defendant, the record does n o t show that the plaintiff has effected service upon the above-captioned defendants.
