1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT 9 FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA 10 11 DANIEL MIRANDA, 12 13 14 15 No. 1:18-cv-00041-DAD-BAM Plaintiff, v. ORDER RELATING AND REASSIGNING CASE CITY OF CERES, Defendant. 16 17 On February 8, 2018, defendant City of Ceres filed a notice of related case, advising the 18 court that this action is related to Quiroz et al. v. City of Ceres, No. 1:17-cv-00444-DAD-MJS, 19 McManus, et al. v. City of Ceres, No. 1:17-cv-00355-DAD-MJS, and Amador et al. v. City of 20 Ceres, No. 1:17-cv-00552-DAD-MJS, which are already assigned to the undersigned and 21 Magistrate Judge Michael J. Seng. (Doc. No. 10.) 22 The court’s review of the complaints in these cases shows they are related within the 23 meaning of Local Rule 123(a), as they involve similar parties, related questions of law and fact, 24 and would likely entail substantial duplication of labor if heard by different judges. Accordingly, 25 assignment of the actions to the undersigned and to Magistrate Judge Michael J. Seng will 26 promote efficiency and economy for the court and parties. 27 28 An order relating cases under this court’s Local Rule 123 merely assigns them to the same district judge and magistrate judge, and does not consolidate the cases. The local rules of this 1 1 district authorize the judge with the lowest numbered case to order the reassignment of any higher 2 numbered cases to himself or herself, upon determining that this assignment is likely to effect a 3 savings of judicial effort. L.R. 123(c). Such good cause appearing here, the court orders that this 4 action be reassigned from Magistrate Judge Barbara A. McAuliffe to Magistrate Judge Michael J. 5 Seng. 6 Accordingly, documents in the above-referenced action shall bear the following new case 7 number: 1:18-cv-00041-DAD-MJS. 8 IT IS SO ORDERED. 9 Dated: February 12, 2018 UNITED STATES DISTRICT JUDGE 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 2
