This action was filed on October 7, 2020. (Dkt. No. 1.) The docket does not reflect that

Plaintiff to advise the Court in writing why he has failed to serve the summons and complaint on
Defendant, or, if Defendant had been served, when and in what manner such service was made.

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.” Fed. R. Civ. P. 4(m).
