1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT 9 FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA 10 11 12 JONATHAN MCMANUS et al., on behalf of themselves and all other employees similarly situated, 13 14 15 Plaintiffs, CITY OF CERES, Defendant. 17 19 No. 1:17-cv-00444-AWI-SAB CARLOS A. QUIROZ, on behalf of himself and all similarly situated individuals, Plaintiffs, 20 21 22 23 ORDER RELATING AND REASSIGNING CASES v. 16 18 No. 1:17-cv-00355-DAD-MJS v. CITY OF CERES, Defendant. 24 25 On April 17, 2017, in Carlos A. Quiroz v. City of Ceres, Case No. 1:17-cv-00444-AWI- 26 SAB, defendant filed a Notice of Related Cases. The court’s review of the record in Carlos A. 27 Quiroz v. City of Ceres, Case No. 1:17-cv-00444-AWI-SAB, reveals it is related under this 28 court’s Local Rule 123 to the case of Jonathan McManus et al. v. City of Ceres, Case No. 1:171 1 cv-00355-DAD-MJS which is pending before the undersigned. These actions involve the same or 2 similar parties, properties, claims, events, and/or questions of fact or law. In addition, while the 3 plaintiff in Quiroz has filed a motion for conditional certification (Doc. No. 13), the currently 4 assigned district and magistrate judges in that action have not yet worked on that motion in any 5 substantial way. Accordingly, assignment of the actions to the undersigned and to Magistrate 6 Judge Michael J. Seng will promote efficiency and economy for the court and parties. 7 An order relating cases under this court’s Local Rule 123 merely assigns them to the same 8 district judge and magistrate judge, and does not consolidate the cases. Good cause appearing, 9 the court orders that the Quiroz action is reassigned to U.S. District Judge Dale A. Drozd and 10 U.S. Magistrate Judge Michael J. Seng. The date set for the hearing on plaintiff’s motion for 11 conditional certification in the Quiroz action (Doc. No. 13) is continued to the undersigned’s law 12 and motion calendar on May 16, 2017 at 9:30 a.m. The date set for the initial scheduling 13 conference in the Quiroz action will remain in effect absent further order of the court. 14 15 Accordingly, documents filed in the above-referenced actions shall bear the following new case numbers: 16 1:17-cv-00355-DAD-MJS 17 1:17-cv-00444-DAD-MJS 18 19 IT IS SO ORDERED. Dated: April 18, 2017 UNITED STATES DISTRICT JUDGE 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 2
