ORDER AND ORDER DIRECTING SERVICE BY THE UNITED STATES MARSHAL/ WITHOUT PREPAYMENT OF COSTS
Plaintiff is proceeding in forma pauperis pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1915. By order filed November 4, 2008 the court determined that plaintiff's complaint states a cognizable claim for relief against defendants CO Easley, Dr. Bal, Dr. Wedell, Appeals Coordinator O'Brian and N. Grannis and ordered plaintiff to provide information for service of process on form USM-285, a completed summons, sufficient copies of the complaint for service, and a notice of compliance, as well as a certified copy of plaintiff's inmate trust account statement. On December 5, 2008, plaintiff filed a request for extension of time to file said documents. Good cause appearing, plaintiff's request will be granted. Plaintiff has filed the required papers. Accordingly, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that:
1. Plaintiff's December 5, 2008 application for an extension of time to comply with the court's November 4, 2008 order (docket no. 15) is granted; plaintiff's December 8, 2008 filing is deemed timely filed.
2. The Clerk of the Court is directed to forward the instructions for service of process, the completed summons, copies of the complaint, a consent/reassignment form contemplated by Appendix A(k) to the Local Rules of this court for each defendant and copies of this order to the United States Marshal.
3. Within ten days from the date of this order, the United States Marshal is directed to notify defendants CO Easley, Dr. Bal, Dr. Wedell, Appeals Coordinator O'Brian and N. Grannis of the commencement of this action and to request a waiver of service of summons in accordance with the provisions of Fed. R. Civ. P. 4(d) and 28 U.S.C. § 566(c).
4. The United States Marshal is directed to retain the sealed summons and a copy of the complaint in their file for future use.
5. The United States Marshal shall file returned waivers of service of summons as well as any requests for waivers that are returned as undelivered as soon as they are received.
6. If a waiver of service of summons is not returned by a defendant within sixty days from the date of mailing the request for waiver, the United States Marshal shall:
a. Personally serve process and a copy of this order upon the defendant pursuant to Rule 4 of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure and 28 U.S.C. § 566(c) and shall command all necessary assistance from the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDC) to execute this order. The United States Marshal shall maintain the confidentiality of all information provided by the CDC pursuant to this order.
b. Within ten days after personal service is effected, the United States Marshal shall file the return of service for the defendant, along with evidence of any attempts to secure a waiver of service of summons and of the costs subsequently incurred in effecting service on said defendant. Said costs shall be enumerated on the USM-285 form and shall include the costs incurred by the Marshal's office for photocopying additional copies of the summons and complaint and for preparing new USM-285 forms, if required. Costs of service will be taxed against the personally served defendant in accordance with the provisions of Fed. R. Civ. P. 4(d)(2).
7. Defendants shall reply to the complaint within the time provided by the applicable provisions of Fed. R. Civ. P. 12(a).
8. Unless otherwise ordered, all motions to dismiss, motions for summary judgment, motions concerning discovery, motions pursuant to Rules 7, 11, 12, 15, 41, 55, 56, 59 and 60 of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, and motions pursuant to Local Rule 11-110 shall be briefed pursuant to Local Rule 78-230(m). Failure to oppose such a motion timely may be deemed a waiver of opposition to the motion. Opposition to all other motions need be filed only as directed by the court.
9. If plaintiff is released from prison at any time during the pendency of this case, any party may request application of other provisions of Local Rule 78-230 in lieu of Local Rule 78-230(m). In the absence of a court order granting such a request, the provisions of Local Rule 78-230(m) will govern all motions described in #8 above regardless of plaintiff's custodial status. See Local Rule 1-102(d).
10. Pursuant to Wyatt v. Terhune, 315 F.3d 1108, 1120 n.14 (9th Cir. 2003), plaintiff is advised of the following requirements for opposing a motion to dismiss for failure to exhaust administrative remedies made by defendant pursuant to non-enumerated Rule 12(b) of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure. Such a motion is a request for dismissal of unexhausted claims without prejudice. The defendant may submit affidavits or declarations under penalty of perjury and admissible documentation to support the motion to dismiss. To oppose the motion, plaintiff may likewise file declarations under penalty of perjury and admissible documentation.
Plaintiff may rely upon statements made under the penalty of perjury in the complaint if the complaint shows that plaintiff has personal knowledge of the matters stated and plaintiff calls to the court's attention those parts of the complaint upon which plaintiff relies. Plaintiff may serve and file one or more affidavits or declarations by other persons who have personal knowledge of relevant matters. Plaintiff may also rely upon written records, but plaintiff must prove that the records are what plaintiff claims they are. If plaintiff fails to contradict defendant's evidence with admissible evidence, the court may rely on the defendant's evidence. In the event both sides submit matters outside the pleadings, the court may look beyond the pleadings and decide disputed issues of fact.
