ORDER TO RELATE ACTIONS AND TO REASSIGN DISTRICT JUDGE KEVIN ELLIOTT, et al., Defendants. 18 19 20 21 Review of the above-captioned action reveals that it is related under this Court’s Local 22 Rule 123 to the action entitled Sequoia ForestKeeper v. Benson, et al., Case No. 1:14-cv- 23 00341-LJO-SKO. The actions involve the same or similar parties, properties, claims, events 24 and/or questions of fact or law. Accordingly, assignment of the actions to the same district 25 judge will promote convenience, efficiency and economy for the Court and parties. An order 26 relating cases under this Court’s Local Rule 123 merely assigns them to the same district 27 judge, and no consolidation of cases is effected. 28 1 1 On the basis of good cause, this Court ORDERS that the above-captioned action is 2 reassigned to U.S. District Judge Lawrence J. O'Neill with new CASE NO. 1:17-CV-01320- 3 LJO-MJS. All documents shall bear the new CASE NO. 1:17-CV-01320-LJO-MJS and the 4 reassignment to U.S. District Judge O'Neill. U.S. Magistrate Judge Michael J. Seng will remain 5 assigned to this action. 6 IT IS SO ORDERED. 7 8 Dated: /s/ Lawrence J.
