BARD INC., et al., Defendants. 22 23 A review of the complaints in the above-captioned cases reveals that they are related 24 under this court’s Local Rule 123(a) to the following related actions pending before the 25 undersigned: Broocks v. C R Bard Inc., 1:19-cv-01228-DAD-BAM; Denzer v. C R Bard Inc., 26 1:19-cv-01236-DAD-BAM; Reynolds v. C R Bard Inc., 1:19-cv-01238-DAD-BAM; Boyer v. C R 27 Bard Inc., 1:19-cv-01243-DAD-BAM; Gonzalez v. C R Bard Inc., 1:19-cv-01316-DAD-BAM; 28 Karpenko v. C R Bard Inc., 1:19-cv-01317-DAD-BAM; Cook v. C R Bard Inc., 1:19-cv-014981 1 DAD-BAM; LaLonde v. C R Bard Inc., 1:19-cv-01516-DAD-BAM; Baker v. C.R. Bard, Inc., 2 1:20-cv-00277-DAD-BAM; Cronan v. C.R. Bard, Inc., 2:15-cv-01418-DAD-BAM; Wilson v. 3 C.R. Bard, Inc., 1:20-cv-00436-DAD-BAM; Bradburn v. C.R. Bard, Inc., 1:20-cv-00437-DAD- 4 BAM; Camarena v. C.R. Bard, Inc., 1:20-cv-00441-DAD-BAM; Butler v. C.R. Bard, Inc., 1:20- 5 cv-00442-DAD-BAM; Molina v. C.R. Bard, Inc., 1:20-cv-00443-DAD-BAM; Bond v. C.R. Bard, 6 Inc., 1:20-cv-00444-DAD-BAM; Krieger v. C.R. Bard, Inc., 1:20-cv-00445-DAD-BAM; Licea v. 7 C.R. Bard, Inc., 2:20-cv-00644-DAD-BAM; and Turner v. C.R. Bard, Inc., 2:20-cv-00645-DAD- 8 BAM. Accordingly, assignment of the above-captioned actions to the undersigned and to 9 Magistrate Judge Barbara A. McAuliffe will promote efficiency and economy for the court and 10 11 the parties. An order relating cases under this court’s Local Rule 123 merely assigns them to the same 12 district judge and magistrate judge—it does not consolidate the cases. The local rules of this 13 district authorize the judge with the lowest numbered case to order the reassignment of any higher 14 numbered cases to himself or herself, upon determining that this assignment is likely to effect a 15 savings of judicial effort. L.R. 123(c). Such good cause appearing here, the court orders that 16 the two (2) above-captioned actions be reassigned to the undersigned and Magistrate Judge 17 Barbara A. McAuliffe and that they be related to each of the nineteen (19) already related 18 actions listed above. The documents in the above-captioned actions shall bear the new case 19 numbers above. 20 IT IS SO ORDERED. 21 Dated: September 4, 2020 UNITED STATES DISTRICT JUDGE 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 2
