UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
DISTRICT OF NEW JERSEY
CHARLES WARREN, et al.,
Civil Action No. 13-4334 (JAP)
Before the Court is a Motion for an Advisory Opinion brought by Plaintiff Richard
Thompson, pro se (“Plaintiff”). In this Motion, Plaintiff requests an opinion advising Plaintiff how
to effectuate service of certain named defendants. Federal courts, however, do not have jurisdiction
to issue an advisory opinion, and therefore are prohibited from doing so. See Michigan v. Long, 463
U.S. 1032, 1041–42, (1983); Toll Bros., Inc. v. Twp. of Readington, 555 F.3d 131, 137 (3d Cir. 2009).
THEREFORE, IT IS on this 2nd day of October, 2014,
ORDERED Plaintiff’s Motion for an Advisory Opinion [ECF No. 39] is DENIED; and it is
ORDERED that the Clerk of the Court shall serve a copy of this Order upon Plaintiff by
/s/ Joel A. Pisano
