(i)

It is your responsibility to obtain a valid summons from the clerk and to effect

service of the summons and complaint on all defendants in accordance with

Rule 4 of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure. If you have named the United

States government, a federal agency, a federal official or a federal employee as

a defendant, you must comply with the special requirements of Rule 4(i).

(ii)

Service may be affected by any person who is not a party and who is at least 18

years of age, which means that you, as a party, may not affect service. If

service of the summons and complaint is not made upon a defendant within

120 days after the filing of the complaint, your action will, under Rule 4(m), be

dismissed as to that defendant.

(iii) Within 125 days after the filing of the complaint, you must file proof of service

indicating which defendants were served within the 120 days allowed under

Rule 4(m) and showing, in accordance with Rule 4(i), how each of those

defendants was served (for example, by attaching appropriate certificates of

service). You must also show cause why a defendant not served within the 120

days allowed under Rule 4(m) should not be dismissed without prejudice.

(iv)

Failure to do these things within the designated time will result in the dismissal

of your case under Rule 4(m) and Rule 41(b).

Dated: September 19, 2013
