EDMUND F. BRENNAN, Magistrate Judge.
Plaintiff Heidi Lepp requests that the court direct the United States Marshals Service to complete service of process on her behalf. ECF No. 14. For the following reasons, the request is denied.
On June 27, 2017, Ms. Lepp filed a complaint against defendants the County of Yuba, Jeremy Strange, and Chris Monaco, and paid the $400 filing fee. The following week, plaintiff filed three proofs of service, purporting to demonstrate service of the summons and complaint on the three named defendants. ECF Nos. 4, 5, 6. Shortly thereafter, Ms. Lepp filed a first amended complaint, which names an additional 27 defendants and purports to add several plaintiffs. ECF No. 7. The amended complaint, however, is only signed by Ms. Lepp.
Ms. Lepp now requests that the court direct the United States Marshals Service to serve the newly named defendants. ECF No. 14. It is plaintiff's responsibility to serve each defendant with a copy of the summons and complaint. Fed. R. Civ. P. 4(c)(1) ("The plaintiff is responsible for having the summons and complaint served within the time allowed by Rule 4(m) and must furnish the necessary copies to the person who makes service."). Although a court may, at the plaintiff's request, order the marshal to complete service, the court is not obligated to grant such a request. See Fed. R. Civ. P. 4(c)(3) ("At the plaintiff's request, the court may order that service be made by a United States marshal. . . .") (emphasis added).
Ms. Lepp has failed to demonstrate any basis for her request. In fact, the three proofs of service she has already filed in this action strongly suggest that she is capable of serving all defendants named in the amended complaint.
