and/or the summons, the Magistrate Judge’s report and recommendation, and this order upon

the complaint on the defendants. Plaintiff is advised that Congress requires the Marshals Service
to charge for making or attempting to make such service. 28 U.S.C. § 1921(b). The current fee
for waiver-of-service packages is $8.00 per item. The full fee schedule is provided in Revision to
