The opinion of the court was delivered by: Kendall J. Newman United States Magistrate Judge
Plaintiff is a prisoner who is proceeding pro se and in forma pauperis. Plaintiff seeks relief pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983.
On December 28, 2012, the court ordered the United States Marshal to serve the complaint on defendants. Service of process on defendants Brown, Jones, Mata, Mitchell, Pulsipher, and Spencer-Sims remains pending. However, process directed to defendants Moreno and Mullen were returned unserved because, respectively, "Per CDC, need more info," and "Per fac[ility] - def. deceased." (Dkt. Nos. 33, 34.)
It appears that defendant Mullen is deceased; plaintiff should consider how this fact impacts this action. Meanwhile, in order to serve defendant Moreno, plaintiff must provide additional contact information. Plaintiff shall promptly seek such information through discovery, the California Public Records Act, Calif. Gov't. Code §§ 6250, et seq., or other means available to plaintiff. If access to the required information is denied or unreasonably delayed, plaintiff may request judicial intervention.
Accordingly, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that:
1. The Clerk of the Court is directed to send to plaintiff one USM-285 form, along with an instruction sheet and a copy of the complaint filed July 16, 2012;
2. Within sixty days from the date of this order, plaintiff shall complete and submit the attached Notice of Submission of Documents to the court, with the following documents:
a. One completed USM-285 form for defendant Moreno;
b. Two copies of the endorsed complaint filed July 16, 2012; and
c. One completed summons form (if not previously provided).
3. If plaintiff is unable to comply with this order, he shall, within the same deadline, show good cause why he cannot provide the requested contact information.
