The Court has directed the United States Marshals Service to serve process in this case.
See Fed. R. Civ. P. 4(c)(2). To do so, by statute, the United States Marshal "shall command all
necessary assistance to execute its duties." See 28 U.S.C.S. § 556(c) (2017).
The Complaint identifies the following Utah Department of Corrections employees as
defendants: Officer Sarah Torgenson, Captain Cultur, Lieutenant Roger Peterson, Sergeant
Glenn Pickett, Officer R. Braithwait, CHS Allred, CHS George, Sergeant
HeatherAnderson, and Officer Ekkart.
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 Court
