UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
WESTERN DISTRICT OF WASHINGTON
KYNTREL T. JACKSON,
Case No. C16-1856-RAJ-MAT
ORDER TO SHOW CAUSE
DEPARTMENT OF CORRECTIONS
WASHINGTON, et al.,
This is a civil rights action brought under 42 U.S.C. § 1983. On December 28, 2016, the
Court directed that plaintiff’s amended complaint be served on defendants C. Kinslow, a dentist at
the Monroe Correctional Complex (“MCC”); Lynn Kunkle, a nurse at the MCC; and Tim
Thrasher, a Department of Corrections manager. (Dkt. 7.) The Clerk mailed the appropriate
paperwork to each defendant at the physical address for the MCC, but all three service packets
were returned as undeliverable with a notation “NOT HERE” on each envelope. (Id.; Dkts. 8-10.)
Plaintiff subsequently submitted to the Court alternative addresses for the defendants. (Dkt. 11.)
On February 7, 2017, the Court directed the Clerk to re-serve defendants at the addresses provided
by plaintiff. (Dkt. 12.)
Ms. Kunkle and Mr. Thrasher received their service packets and counsel appeared on their
ORDER - 1
behalf and filed an answer. (Dkts. 14-17.) Dr. Kinslow, however, has not returned the waiver of
service of summons that was included in his service packet. Presumably he received the service
packet the second time it was sent because it was not returned to the Court.
Based on the foregoing, the Court ORDERS:
Defendant C. Kinslow shall SHOW CAUSE within twenty-one (21) days of the
date of this Order why the Court should not direct that he be personally served and why the cost
of such personal service should not by assessed pursuant to Rule 4(d)(2) of the Federal Rules of
The Clerk is directed to send copies of this Order to plaintiff, to counsel for Ms.
Kunkle and Mr. Thrasher, to Dr. Kinslow at the address provided by plaintiff in Docket 11, and to
the Honorable Richard A. Jones.
DATED this 3rd day of April, 2017.

United States Magistrate Judge
