UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
DISTRICT OF NEVADA
BRIAN SANDOVAL et al.,
This is an action on a civil rights complaint pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983, removed from
state court. The Court entered a screening order on the fourth amended complaint on
November 10, 2014. (ECF No. 50). The screening order imposed a 90-day stay and the
Court entered a subsequent order in which the parties were assigned to mediation by a court-
appointed mediator. (ECF No. 50, 55). The Office of the Attorney General has filed a status
report indicating that settlement has not been reached and informing the Court of its intent to
proceed with this action. (ECF No. 63).
IT IS THEREFORE ORDERED that:
The Clerk of the Court shall electronically SERVE a copy of this order and a copy
of Plaintiff’s fourth amended complaint (ECF No. 47) on the Office of the Attorney General of
the State of Nevada, attention Kat Howe.
Subject to the findings of the screening order (ECF No. 50), within twenty-one
(21) days of the date of entry of this order, the Attorney General’s Office shall file a notice
advising the Court and Plaintiff of: (a) the names of the defendants for whom it accepts
service; (b) the names of the defendants for whom it does not accept service, and (c) the
names of the defendants for whom it is filing last-known-address information under seal. As
to any of the named defendants for which the Attorney General’s Office cannot accept service,
the Office shall file, under seal, the last known address(es) of those defendant(s) for whom
it has such information.
If service cannot be accepted for any of the named defendant(s), Plaintiff shall
file a motion identifying the unserved defendant(s), requesting issuance of a summons, and
specifying a full name and address for the defendant(s). For the defendant(s) as to which the
Attorney General has not provided last-known-address information, Plaintiff shall provide the
full name and address for the defendant(s).
If the Attorney General accepts service of process for any named defendant(s),
such defendant(s) shall file and serve an answer or other response to the complaint within
sixty (60) days from the date of this order.
Henceforth, Plaintiff shall serve upon defendant(s) or, if an appearance has been
entered by counsel, upon their attorney(s), a copy of every pleading, motion or other document
submitted for consideration by the Court. Plaintiff shall include with the original paper
submitted for filing a certificate stating the date that a true and correct copy of the document
was mailed to the defendants or counsel for the defendants. If counsel has entered a notice
of appearance, Plaintiff shall direct service to the individual attorney named in the notice of
appearance, at the address stated therein. The Court may disregard any paper received by
a district judge or magistrate judge which has not been filed with the Clerk of the Court, and
any paper received by a district judge, magistrate judge, or the Clerk of the Court which fails
to include a certificate showing proper service.
DATED: This 9th day of March, 2015.
United States Magistrate Judge
