UNITED STATES JUDICIAL PANEL on MULTIDISTRICT LITIGATION
IN RE: COUNTRYWIDE FINANCIAL CORP. CUSTOMER DATA SECURITY BREACH LITIGATION (SEE ATTACHED SCHEDULE) CONDITIONAL TRANSFER ORDER (CTO-1)
MDL No. 1998
On December 2, 2008, the Panel transferred six civil actions to the United States District Court for the Western District of Kentucky for coordinated or consolidated pretrial proceedings pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1407. See F.Supp.2d. (J.P.M.L. 2008). With the consent of that court, all such actions have been assigned to the Honorable Thomas B. Russell. It appears that the actions on this conditional transfer order involve questions of fact that are common to the actions previously transferred to the Western District of Kentucky and assigned to Judge Russell. Pursuant to Rule 7.4 of the Rules of Procedure of the Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation, 199 F.R.D. 425, 435-36 (2001), these actions are transferred under 28 U.S.C. § 1407 to the Western District of Kentucky for the reasons stated in the order of December 2, 2008, and, with the consent of that court, assigned to the Honorable Thomas B. Russell. This order does not become effective until it is filed in the Office of the Clerk of the United States District Court for the Western District of Kentucky. The transmittal of this order to said Clerk shall be stayed 15 days from the entry thereof. If any party files a notice of opposition with the Clerk of the Panel within this 15-day period, the stay will be continued until further order of the Panel. FOR THE PANEL:
