UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF NEW YORK
March 1, 2007
GERALD STEVENS, PLAINTIFF,
CAPTAIN DOMMES, NEW YORK CITY DEPARTMENT OF CORRECTIONS, JOHN DOE #1, JOHN DOE #2, DEFENDANTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Alvin K. Hellerstein, U.S.D.J.
ORDER REGULATING PROCEEDINGS
By Order of January 8, 2007, I ordered the plaintiff to serve a summons and copies of the Complaint upon the defendants, and to file proof of such service with the Clerk of the Court, by February 26, 2007. I ordered also that the Clerk of the Court issue an amended summons to the plaintiff.
It appears that the United States Marshall has not been able to effect service.
I order, as follows:
1. The time for effecting service is enlarged to April 30, 2007.
2. The Corporation Counsel of the City of New York, in answer to interrogatories served by the plaintiff on February 16, 2007, shall (a) identify where and when Dommes can be served or, alternatively, accept service on his behalf; (b) identify the Department of Corrections Officers on duty at the time and place of the allegations set out in the complaint, and state where and when each person who plaintiff reasonably believes should be a defendant may be served. See Valentin v. Dinkins, 121 F.3d 72 (2d Cir. 1997) (per curiam).
