1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT 9 FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA 10 11 12 ROADRUNNER INTERMODAL SERVICES, LLC, Plaintiff, 13 14 15 T.G.S. TRANSPORTATION, INC., Defendant. No. 1:17-cv-01207-LJO-SAB JEFFREY COX, 18 19 20 21 ORDER RELATING AND REASSIGNING CASES v. 16 17 No. 1:17-cv-01056-DAD-BAM Plaintiff, v. ROADRUNNER INTERMODAL SERVICES, LLC, et al., Defendants. 22 23 On September 8, 2017, T.G.S. Transportation, Inc., the defendant in case number 1:17-cv- 24 01056-DAD-BAM, filed an amended notice of related case. (Doc. No. 23.) Similarly, on the 25 same date, plaintiff in Cox v. Roadrunner Intermodal Services, LLC et al., Case No. 1:17-cv- 26 01207-LJO-SAB, filed a notice of related case. (Doc. No. 3.) The court’s review of the 27 complaints in these cases shows they are related within the meaning of Local Rule 123(a), as they 28 involve similar parties and related questions of law and fact. Accordingly, assignment of the 1 1 actions to the undersigned and to Magistrate Judge Barbara A. McAuliffe will promote efficiency 2 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. The local rules of this 5 district authorize the judge with the lowest numbered case to order the reassignment of any higher 6 numbered cases to himself or herself, upon determining that this assignment is likely to effect a 7 savings of judicial effort. L.R. 123(c). Such good cause appearing here, the court orders that Cox 8 v. Roadrunner Intermodal Services, LLC, et al., Case No. 1:17-cv-01207-LJO-SAB, be 9 reassigned to U.S. District Judge Dale A. Drozd and U.S. Magistrate Judge Barbra A. McAuliffe. 10 11 Accordingly, documents filed in the above-referenced actions shall bear the following new case numbers: 12 1:17-cv-01056-DAD-BAM 13 1:17-cv-01207-DAD-BAM 14 15 IT IS SO ORDERED. Dated: September 13, 2017 UNITED STATES DISTRICT JUDGE 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 2
