Judge Kim R. Terrence F. McVerry
The above captioned case was transferred to the Western District of Pennsylvania, Pittsburgh Division, from the Middle District of Pennsylvania. Currently, this action remains dormant, as Plaintiff has provided neither the appropriate number of copies of his 81 page complaint for the Court to effectuate service, nor the required service forms. The Plaintiff must provide a copy of the complaint as well as a U.S. Marshal Form 285 and a Notice of Lawsuit and Waiver of Service of Summons form for each named Defendant. Service will be ordered once the Court receives these items. Therefore,
IT IS ORDERED this 9th day of January, 2007, that the Plaintiff provide the Court with a true and correct copy of his Complaint (Doc. Nos. 3 and 4) as well as a completed U.S. Marshal Form 285 and a completed Notice of Lawsuit and Waiver of Service of Summons for each and every Defendant, no later than February 9, 2007.
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that failure to provide sufficient copies of the complaint, or completed service forms, by February 9, 2007, will result in a recommendation to the District Judge that this case be dismissed for failure to prosecute.
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that the Clerk of Court provide the Plaintiff with a true and correct copy of his complaint so that he may make service copies
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that the parties are allowed ten (10) days from this date to appeal this order to a district judge pursuant to Rule 72.1.3(B) of the Local Rules for Magistrates. Failure to appeal within ten (10) days may constitute waiver of the right to appeal.
