ORDER RELATING AND REASSIGNING CASES CAROLINE CIRAOLO-KLEPPER et al., 15 Defendants. 16 17 No. 1:17-cv-00187-LJO-MJS UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, Plaintiff, 18 19 20 21 New Case Number: 1:17-cr-00187-DAD-EPG v. MELBA FORD, Defendant. 22 23 Review of the above-captioned action entitled United States of America v. Melba Ford, 24 No. 1:17-cv-00187-LJO-MJS (“Ford II”), reveals it is related under this court’s Local Rule 123 to 25 the following action pending before the undersigned: Melba Ford v. Caroline Ciraolo-Klepper et 26 al., No. 1:17-cv-00034-DAD-EPG. These actions involve the same or similar parties, properties, 27 claims, events, and/or questions of fact or law. In addition, the currently assigned district and 28 magistrate judges in the Ford II action have not engaged in that matter in any substantial way. 1 1 Accordingly, assignment of the actions to the undersigned and to Magistrate Judge Erica P. 2 Grosjean will promote efficiency and economy for the court and parties. 3 An order relating cases under this court’s Local Rule 123 merely assigns them to the same 4 district judge and magistrate judge, and does not consolidate the cases. Good cause appearing, 5 the court orders that the Ford II action is reassigned to U.S. District Judge Dale A. Drozd and 6 U.S. Magistrate Judge Erica P. Grosjean. All documents filed in that action shall bear the new 7 case number: 8 9 10 1:17-cv-00187-DAD-EPG IT IS SO ORDERED. Dated: March 17, 2017 UNITED STATES DISTRICT JUDGE 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 2
