Tahlib Banks, et al v. the City of New York

UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT EASTERN DISTRICT OF NEW YORK


April 25, 2013

TAHLIB BANKS, ET AL., PLAINTIFFS,
v.
THE CITY OF NEW YORK, ET AL., DEFENDANTS.

The opinion of the court was delivered by: Marilyn D. GO United States Magistrate Judge

ORDER

Plaintiffs' application to proceed in forma pauperis under 28 U.S.C. § 1915 is hereby granted. 28 U.S.C. 1915(d) and F.R.C.P. 4(c)(3) require that when a plaintiff is authorized to proceed in forma pauperis, the court shall order a U.S. Marshal or someone specially appointed to effect service. Plaintiffs' counsel is hereby appointed to serve process on the individual defendants by mail. The docket sheet reflects that summonses were issued at the time plaintiffs filed the complaint and their counsel apparently has already served the Corporation Counsel's office. This Court notes that the Marshals ordinarily serve process by mail, see Manson v. Simply Food LIC LLC, 2010 WL 376644 at *2 (E.D.N.Y. Jan. 26, 2010) (discussing the Marshal's service by mail), and, from this Court's experience, police officers will appear after service by mail. Counsel for the City defendant is requested to provide plaintiffs' counsel with the work addresses of the named individual defendants by 5/1/13.

SO ORDERED.
