Terrence L. Davis v. Sac Co. Jail

December 30, 2011

TERRENCE L. DAVIS, PLAINTIFF,
v.
SAC CO. JAIL, ET AL.,
DEFENDANTS.



The opinion of the court was delivered by: Carolyn K. Delaney United States Magistrate Judge

ORDER AND ORDER DIRECTING SERVICE BY THE UNITED STATES MARSHAL / WITHOUT PREPAYMENT OF COSTS

Plaintiff is proceeding in forma pauperispursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1915. By order filed November 21, 2011, the court determined that service of the complaint is appropriate for defendants Hernandez and Woodward and ordered plaintiff to provide information for service of process on form USM-285, a completed summons, sufficient copies of the complaint for service, and a notice of compliance. Plaintiff has filed the required papers. Accordingly, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that:

1. The Clerk of the Court is directed to forward to the United States Marshal the instructions for service of process, the completed summons, copies of the complaint, copies of the form Consent to Proceed Before a United States Magistrate Judge, and copies of this order.

2. Within fourteen days from the date of this order, the United States Marshal shall notify defendants Hernandez and Woodward of the commencement of this action and 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 shall retain the sealed summons and a copy of the 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 defendant waives service, the defendant is required to return the signed waiver to the United States Marshal. The filing of an answer or a responsive motion does not relieve a defendant of this requirement, and the failure to return the signed waiver may subject a defendant to an order to pay the costs of service pursuant to Fed. R. Civ. P. 4(d)(2).

6. If a defendant does not return a waiver of service of summons 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 on the defendant in accordance with Fed. R. Civ. P. 4 and 28 U.S.C. § 566(c) and shall command all necessary assistance from the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR) or any last known employer of a defendant to execute this order. The United States Marshal shall maintain the confidentiality of all information so provided pursuant to this order.

b. File, within fourteen days after personal service is effected, the return of service, along with evidence of any attempts to secure a waiver of service of summons and of the costs subsequently incurred in effecting service on the 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 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).

7. Defendants shall reply to the complaint within the time provided in Fed. R. Civ. P. 12(a).

8. Unless otherwise ordered, all motions to dismiss, motions for summary judgment, motions concerning discovery, motions pursuant to Fed. R. Civ. P. 7, 11, 12, 15, 41, 55, 56, 59 and 60, and E.D. Cal. R. 110, shall be briefed pursuant to L.R. 230(l). Failure to timely oppose such a motion may be deemed a waiver of opposition to the motion. See L.R. 230(l). Opposition to all other motions need be filed only as directed by the court.

9. If plaintiff is released from prison while this case is pending, any party may request application of other provisions of L.R. 230 in lieu of L.R. 230(l). Until such a motion is granted, the provisions of L.R. 230(l) will govern all motions described in #7 above regardless of plaintiff's custodial status. See L.R. 102(d).

10. Pursuant to Wyatt v. Terhune, 315 F.3d 1108, 1120 n.14 (9th Cir. 2003), the court hereby informs plaintiff of the following requirements for opposing a motion to dismiss for failure to exhaust administrative remedies pursuant to Fed. R. Civ. P. 12(b). Such a motion is a request that the court dismiss without prejudice any unexhausted claims. The moving party may submit affidavits or declarations under penalty of perjury and admissible documents to support the motion to dismiss. To oppose the motion, plaintiff may likewise file declarations under penalty of perjury and admissible documents. Plaintiff may rely on plaintiff's statements made under penalty of perjury in the complaint if the complaint shows that plaintiff has personal knowledge of the matters stated and plaintiff specifies the parts of the complaint on which plaintiff relies. Plaintiff may also rely on one or more affidavits or declarations sworn to by other persons who have personal knowledge of relevant matters. In addition, plaintiff may rely on written records, but plaintiff must prove that the records are what plaintiff asserts they are. If plaintiff fails to contradict defendant's evidence with admissible evidence, the court may rely on defendant's evidence. In the event both sides submit matters outside of the pleadings, the court may look beyond the pleadings ...
