Issue: Whether, under Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 4(m), a district court has discretion to extend the time for service of process even without a showing of good cause, as the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 2d, 3d, 5th, 7th, 8th, 9th, 10th, 11th, and D.C. Circuits have held, and as the Supreme Court has interpreted, or whether the district court lacks such discretion, as the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 4th Circuit has squarely held and as the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 6th Circuit has repeatedly suggested.
