If counsel is otherwise informed of the business addresses of defendants Perbula and Stratton, counsel shall provide the address to plaintiff. In the event that defendants cannot locate the business addresses of defendants Perbula and Stratton, they shall seek the home addresses of defendants Perbula and Stratton. If defendants cannot locate the current home addressees of defendants Perbula and Stratton, defendants shall provide the last known home address for defendants Perbula and Stratton set forth in CDCR records.

In the event that counsel, after conducting a good faith inquiry, cannot ascertain the business or home addresses of defendants Perbula or Stratton, counsel shall so inform the court.
