necessary assistance to execute its duties." See 28 U.S.C.S. § 556(c) (2017).
The Amended Complaint identifies the following Utah Department of Corrections
employees as defendants:

Service of process on current government employees may be effected via authorized
agent. If any of the named defendants are no longer employed by the State or the State is not
authorized to accept service for any of these individuals, more information must be obtained
from the State to complete service.
Accordingly, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that: If the State is unable to accept service
of process for the defendants identified above, the State shall disclose to the United States
Marshals Service any information in its records that may help in identifying, locating and
completing service of process upon the named defendants. Such information shall include, but is
not limited to, the defendants' full names and any known aliases, dates of birth, Social Security
numbers, driver's license numbers, all previous addresses, and last known addresses on file. The
U.S. Marshal shall take all necessary measures to safeguard any personal information provided
by the State to ensure that it is not disclosed to anyone other than the U.S. Marshals Service or
IT IS SO ORDERED.
