April 19, 2017

RAY CHARLES HARRIS, Plaintiff,
v.
MIGUEL BALDERAMA, ROSE, JOHN DOE, Defendant.

          ORDER DIRECTING PERSONAL SERVICE BY UNITED STATES MARSHALS ON DEFENDANT NURSE ROSE

          David W. Christel United States Magistrate Judge.

         This is a civil rights action brought pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983. Plaintiff is proceeding with this action pro se and in forma pauperis. The Clerk's Office has attempted to effect service pursuant to Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 4(d), but Defendant Nurse Rose has not timely returned a signed Waiver of Service of Summons. See Dkt. 6.

         (1) Service by United States Marshals Service

         The United States Marshals Service is therefore ORDERED to personally serve the summons and complaint together with a copy of this Order upon Defendant. The Clerk shall issue summons and assemble the necessary documents to effect this personal service.

         (2) Response Required

         Within thirty (30) days after service, Defendant shall: (A) file and serve an answer or a motion directed to the complaint, as permitted by Rule 12 of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure; and (B) show cause why he should not be assessed the cost of personal service pursuant to Rule 4(d) of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure.

         (3) Filing and Service by Parties, Generally

         All attorneys admitted to practice before this Court are required to file documents electronically via the Court's CM/ECF system. Counsel are directed to the Court's website, www.wawd.uscourts.gov, for a detailed description of the requirements for filing via CM/ECF. Plaintiff shall file all documents electronically. All filings must indicate in the upper right hand corner the name of the magistrate judge to whom the document is directed.

         For any party filing electronically, when the total of all pages of a filing exceeds fifty (50) pages in length, a paper copy of the document (with tabs or other organizing aids as necessary) shall be delivered to the Clerk's Office for chambers. The chambers copy must be clearly marked with the words “Courtesy Copy of Electronic Filing for Chambers.”

         Any document filed with the Court must be accompanied by proof that it has been served upon all parties that have entered a notice of appearance in the underlying matter.

         (4) Motions, Generally

         Any request for court action shall be set forth in a motion, properly filed and served. Pursuant to LCR 7(b), any argument being offered in support of a motion shall be submitted as a part of the motion itself and not in a separate document. The motion shall include in its caption (immediately below the title of the motion) a designation of the date the motion is to be noted for consideration upon the Court's motion calendar.

         Stipulated and agreed motions, motions to file over-length motions or briefs, motions for reconsideration, joint submissions pursuant to the option procedure established in LCR 37(a)(2), motions for default, requests for the clerk to enter default judgment, and motions for the court to enter default judgment where the opposing party has not appeared shall be noted for consideration on the day they are filed. See LCR 7(d)(1). All other non-dispositive motions shall be noted for consideration no earlier than the third Friday following filing and service of the motion. See LCR 7(d)(3). All dispositive motions shall be noted for consideration no earlier than the fourth Friday following filing and service of the motion. Id.
