SEYBERT, District Judge:
On May 5, 2014, the Court received a process receipt and
return from the United States Marshal Service (“USMS”) indicating
that the USMS was unable to serve Defendant Vito Marcantonio
(“Marcantonio”) at the address previously provided to the Court.
(Docket Entry 22.)
Based upon pro se Plaintiff’s filings herein,
it was unclear whether Marcantonio was a police officer or a public
safety official employed by Hofstra University (“Hofstra”).
May 15, 2014, the Court therefore reauthorized service of the
Summons and Complaint at Hofstra, to the extent that Marcantonio
was employed in any capacity by Hofstra.
(Docket Entry 24.)
October 10, 2014, the Court again received a process receipt and
return from the USMS stating that the general counsel of Hofstra
would not accept service since “no such individual works at [the]
(Docket Entry 27.)
Hofstra and now moves for the Court to order the USMS to return to
(Docket Entry 26.)
Plaintiff’s motion is DENIED.
Court will order the USMS to attempt service one additional time.
The Clerk of the Court is directed to issue a Summons and Rider
identical to the previous Summons and Rider at Docket Entry 25 and
forward them to the USMS together with the Complaint, the Court’s
November 18, 2013 and May 15, 2014 Orders (Docket Entries 7, 24),
and this Order for service upon Marcantonio.
The USMS shall
attempt service at the following addresses previously provided by
Hempstead, NY 11549; (2) Hofstra University’s Department of Public
Safety and Information Center, Hempstead Turnpike and California
Avenue, Hempstead, NY 11550; and (3) Hofstra University, 1000
Fulton Avenue, Hempstead, NY 11550.
If the USMS cannot effectuate
service this third time, the Court will have no choice but to
dismiss this action.
Finally, Plaintiff’s motion for in forma pauperis status
“for all appeals in the future” (Docket Entry 28) is DENIED.
The Clerk of the Court is directed to mail a copy of
this Order to pro se Plaintiff.
