UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
December 9, 2011
L. CANNEDY, ET AL., DEFENDANTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: J. Clifford Wallace United States Circuit Judge
On November 17, 2011, I ordered that defendant Rivas shall pay to the United States Marshal the sum of $819.20 in expenses for service unless Rivas filed a statement showing good cause for the failure to waive service under Fed. R. Civ. P. 4(d)(2). Dkt. 66. On December 1, 2011, Rivas filed a response. Dkt. 70.
I find that Rivas's response shows good cause for the failure to waive service. Therefore, Rivas is not obligated to pay the Marshal's expenses under Fed. R. Civ. P. 4(d)(2).
The Clerk of the Court is directed to serve a copy of this order on the U.S. Marshal.
J. Clifford Wallace
