Miranda v. Strike, LLC et al
ORDER TO SHOW CAUSE by Magistrate Judge William P. Lynch. Show Cause Response due by 2/17/2017. (mej)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE DISTRICT OF NEW MEXICO
CV 16-1062 JCH/WPL
STRIKE, LLC, and JOEL BENAVIDES,
ORDER TO SHOW CAUSE
This matter is before the Court sua sponte. Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 4(m)
provides in part:
If a defendant is not served within 90 days after the complaint is filed, the court—
on motion or on its own after notice to the plaintiff—must dismiss the action
without prejudice against that defendant or order that service be made within a
specified time. But if the plaintiff shows good cause for the failure, the court must
extend the time for service for an appropriate period. . . .
More than 90 days have elapsed since this action was commenced, and the record reflects that
Defendant Joel Benavides has not been served. In removed cases, the time for tolling the 90 day
period begins upon the date of removal. See 28 U.S.C. § 1448.
IT IS THEREFORE ORDERED that, no later than February 17, 2017, Plaintiff must
either effect service or provide the Court with a written explanation why service has not been
effected. If Plaintiff fails to respond within the time allotted, this action will be dismissed
