The Court, having reviewed plaintiffs second amended complaint, hereby ORDERS as follows:

         The Clerk is directed to send to Dr. Steve Hammond, Dr. Jill Barnett, and PA Robin Smith, by e-mail: a copy of plaintiffs second amended complaint (Dkt. 9), a copy of this Order, a copy of the notice of lawsuit and request for waiver of service of summons, and a waiver of service of summons.

         (2) Response Required

         Defendants shall have thirty (30) days within which to return the waiver of service of summons. If a defendant timely returns the signed waiver, she or he shall have sixty (60) days after the date designated on the notice of lawsuit to file and serve an answer to the second amended complaint or a motion permitted under Rule 12 of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure.

         If a defendant fails to timely return the signed waiver, she or he will be personally served with a summons and complaint, and may be required to pay the full costs of such service, pursuant to Rule 4(d)(2) of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure. A defendant who has been personally served shall file an answer or motion permitted under Rule 12 within thirty (30) days after service.
