Re: Request for records concerning plaintiff's criminal case

Disposition: Ordering plaintiff and clerk to pursue further actions

  • Litigation Considerations: The court finds that "[i]t does not appear that service was ever effected." "There is also no indication in the record that [plaintiff] ever prepared a summons or requested service." "It also does not appear that the defect in service has been brought to [plaintiff's] attention, and [plaintiff] has given the Court no indication that he is aware that service has not been effected." "Finally, the Court is concerned that the Clerk's office failed to provide notice that it customarily provides in response to an in forma pauperis plaintiff who seeks updates as to the status of his case."
