ORDER AND ORDER DIRECTING SERVICE BY THE UNITED STATES MARSHAL WITHOUT PREPAYMENT OF COSTS
Plaintiff is proceeding without counsel and in forma pauperis pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1915. By order filed March 2, 2010, the court determined that plaintiff's complaint states a cognizable claim for relief against defendants Nasir, Sudran and Swarthout and ordered plaintiff to provide information for service of process on form USM-285, a completed summons, sufficient copies of the December 22, 2009 amended complaint for service, and a notice of compliance.*fn1 Plaintiff has filed the required papers.
Accordingly, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that:
1. The Clerk of the Court is directed to forward the instructions for service of process, the completed summons, copies of the amended 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.
2. Within ten days from the date of this order, the United States Marshal is directed to notify defendants Nasir, Sudran and Swarthout 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).
3. The United States Marshal is directed to retain the sealed summons and a copy of the amended complaint in its file for future use.
4. 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.
5. 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 (CDCR) to execute this order. The United States Marshal shall maintain the confidentiality of all information provided by CDCR 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 that defendant. Such costs shall be enumerated on the USM-285 form and shall include the costs incurred by the United States Marshal's office for photocopying additional copies of the summons and amended 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).
6. Defendants shall reply to the amended complaint within the time provided by the applicable provisions of Fed. R. Civ. P. 12(a).
7. 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 110, shall be briefed pursuant to Local Rule 230(l). Failure to timely oppose such a motion may be deemed a waiver of opposition to the motion. Opposition to all other motions need be filed only as directed by the court.
8. 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 230 in lieu of Local Rule 230(l). In the absence of a court order granting such a request, the provisions of Local Rule 230(l) will govern all motions described in #7 above regardless of plaintiff's custodial status. See Local Rule 102(d).
9. 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 a defendant pursuant to non-enumerated Rule 12(b) of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure.

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 penalty of perjury in the amended complaint if the amended complaint shows that plaintiff has personal knowledge of the matters stated and plaintiff calls to the court's attention those parts of the amended 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.
