RELATED CASE ORDER / 26 1 1 Examination of the above-captioned actions reveals that they are related within 2 the meaning of Local Rule 123(a). Here, “both actions involve similar questions of fact and the 3 same question of law and their assignment to the same Judge or Magistrate Judge is likely to 4 effect a substantial savings of judicial effort.” Local Rule 123(a)(3). Accordingly, the 5 assignment of these matters to the same judge is likely to effect a substantial savings of judicial 6 effort and is likely to be convenient for the parties. 7 The parties should be aware that relating cases under Rule 123 causes the actions 8 to be assigned to the same judge – it does not consolidate the actions. Under Rule 123, related 9 cases are generally assigned to the judge and magistrate judge to whom the first filed action was 10 11 assigned. As a result, it is hereby ORDERED that CIV S-12-0869, is reassigned from Judge 12 Garland Burrell, Jr. to the undersigned and from Magistrate Judge Dale Drozd to Magistrate 13 Judge Edmund Brennan. In addition, it is hereby ORDERED that CIV S-12-888 is reassigned 14 from Magistrate Judge John Moulds to Magistrate Judge Edmund Brennan. Henceforth, the 15 caption on documents filed in these reassigned case shall be shown as: CIV S-12-0869 KJM- 16 EFB and CIV S-12-0888 KJM-EFB, respectively. 17 18 19 20 It is further ORDERED that the Clerk of the Court make appropriate adjustment in the assignment of civil cases to compensate for this reassignment. IT IS SO ORDERED. DATED: April 11, 2012. 21 UNITED STATES DISTRICT JUDGE 22 23 24 25 26 2
