Witness Iraq has notified the defendants in the civil action — George W. Bush, Richard Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld, Colin Powell, Condoleezza Rice and Paul Wolfowitz — by mail of the lawsuits.
Witness Iraq has requested a response from counsel from all defendants by May 22, 2013.
In the event that counsel does not respond, Witness Iraq will issue the summons and personally serve any and all defendants within the jurisdiction of the Northern District of California.
Upon successful service of the summons and the complaints, the defendants will have 21 days to respond.
If the defendants do not respond, the plaintiffs may seek a “default judgment” from the federal court.
