|LARRY S. CARLISLE and CARRIE
DEPARTMENT OF INTERIOR
DEPARTMENT OF INTERIOR, United States Secretary of the Department of the Interior; BUREAU OF LAND MANAGEMENT; and UNITED STATES CONGRESS, 1976 Congress, namely the Federal Land Policy and Management Act of 1976,
This appeal is from an order of the district court dismissing appellants' action for failure to show cause why service was not effected in the district court in compliance with Rule 4(i) of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure.
The district court records are clear that summonses were not issued and that defendants did not waive service of summons. On appeal here, appellants seek permission to file the brief on appeal out of time. To the extent that the brief filed with the court on July 11, 1997, constitutes the brief in this case, the motion to file the brief out of time is granted. In all of the filings before the district court and this court appellants have failed to show that service was effected in compliance with Rule 4(i) of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure. We therefore affirm the order of the district court dismissing this action without prejudice. AFFIRMED.
ENTERED FOR THE COURT,
Deanell Reece Tacha
