Lawrence Pamer v. Arnold Schwarzenegger

IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA


December 22, 2011

LAWRENCE PAMER,
PLAINTIFF,
v.
ARNOLD SCHWARZENEGGER, ET AL., DEFENDANTS.

The opinion of the court was delivered by: Craig M. Kellison United States Magistrate Judge

ORDER

Plaintiff, a state prisoner proceeding pro se, brings this civil rights action pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983. Defendants have filed a notice of Plaintiff's death pursuant to Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 25(a)(1) (Doc. 117).

The court notes that the suggestion of death filed with the court does not contain a proof of service. The party suggesting the death of another party must serve the suggestion of death on the other parties to the action and the nonparty successors or representatives of the deceased. See Barlow v. Ground, 39 F.3d 231, 233 (9th Cir. 1994). Service of the notice is required on all parties pursuant to Rule 5 and on nonparties pursuant to Rule 4. See Fed. R. Civ. Proc. 25(a)(3). Prior to dismissing an action for failure to substitute the proper party, proper notice must be provided. See Barlow, 39 F.3d at 233, Fed. R. Civ. Proc. 25 (requiring dismissal of action by the decedent if a motion to substitute is not filed within 90 days after service of the statement suggesting death). Defendants are therefore directed to serve the suggestion of death upon the record pursuant to Rule 25. See Fed. R. Civ. Proc. 25(a)(3).

SO ORDERED.
