IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
February 16, 2010
ANTHONY CRAIG SMITH, PLAINTIFF,
CITY OF VALLEJO, ET AL., DEFENDANTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Kendall J. Newman United States Magistrate Judge
Plaintiff is a state prisoner proceeding without counsel with a civil rights complaint pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983. On August 19, 2009, plaintiff filed a motion asking the court to inquire as to the status of service of process on defendants. On November 12, 2009, plaintiff filed a request for entry of default, alleging that defendants failed to timely answer the complaint.
However, on August 19, 2009, the U.S. Marshal filed a waiver of service of summons confirming service of process on defendants. Defendants waived service on August 12, 2009, which thereby extended their deadline to respond to the complaint until October 12, 2009. Defendants timely filed a motion to dismiss on August 14, 2009. Thus, plaintiff's motion and request for entry of default will be denied as moot.
IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that:
1. Plaintiff's August 19, 2009 motion is denied; and
2. Plaintiff's November 12, 2009 request is denied.
