IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
June 1, 2012
RICHARD ("RICK") AND SHARON NORLUND, PLAINTIFFS,
BOGMAN, INC. ("BOGMAN"), ET AL., DEFENDANTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Kendall J. Newman United States Magistrate Judge
Although plaintiffs filed an application to proceed in forma pauperis in commencing this action, they later paid the applicable filing fee on May 15, 2012.*fn1 Accordingly, on May 17, 2012, the court denied plaintiffs' application to proceed in forma pauperis as moot and issued a summons and an Order Setting Status Conference (Dkt. Nos. 9, 11-12). On May 30, 2012, plaintiffs filed a motion seeking clarification in regards to the Order Setting Status Conference, which on the one hand requires plaintiffs to effectuate service of process within 120 days of the date of the Order Setting Status Conference, but in the same sentence cautions plaintiffs that their case "may be dismissed if service of process is not accomplished within 120 days from the date that the complaint [was] filed." (Order Setting Status Conf. ¶ 1.) By this order, the court advises plaintiffs that they must effectuate service of process within 120 days of the date of the Order Setting Status Conference.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
