needsolution said:For those who have already filed their lawsuits, I was given a notice by court "it is your obligation to serve the following "Notice of Right to Consent to Disposition of a Civil Case by a United States Magistrate Judge" and the attached consent form upon the defendants with the complaint and summons. Was I supposed to send this notice along with the complaint and summons to the defendants? Nobody told me so. Is this optional or required to do it? What is a magistrate judge anyways? Is it a good idea to accept one? Someone please answer, thanks
Don't panic, just make a copy of the documents and send them to the US attorney's office. Make sure you file a Certificate of Service with the District court. I attached a copy.
