Meilleur v. Strong, No. 11-2729 (2d Cir. 2012)Annotate this Case
Plaintiff, proceeding pro se and in forma pauperis, appealed an order of the district court dismissing her 42 U.S.C. 1983 claim for failure of timely service and a subsequent order denying her Rule 60(b) "motion to open." The court held that the district court did not abuse its discretion in dismissing plaintiff's action or in denying Rule 60(b) relief, despite her attempt to effect service with the aid of the U.S. Marshals Service. Accordingly, the court affirmed the judgment.
