UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
MAKSIM YURYEVICH ISAYEV,
No. 2:12-cv-2551 JAM KJN
No. 2:12-cv-2857 JKS
No. 2:12-cv-2644 JKS
W. MILLER, Warden,
Counsel for respondent filed a notice of related cases in the above actions. (ECF No. 33.)
Examination of the above-entitled actions reveals that these cases are related within the
meaning of Local Rule 123(a). All of the petitioners were jointly tried in the Sacramento County
Superior Court; each at least partly joined in the others’ direct appellate briefs; and their direct
appeals were jointly decided. In addition, the state court record overlaps all three cases.
Moreover, the undersigned issued memorandum decisions denying relief in two of the cases.
Absent relation, there could be substantial duplication of labor. Accordingly, assignment of the
matters to the same judge is likely to effect a substantial saving of judicial effort and is also
likely to be convenient for the parties.
The parties should be aware that relating the cases under Local Rule 123 merely has the
result that the actions are assigned to the same judge; no consolidation of the actions is effected.
Under the regular practice of this court, related cases are generally assigned to the judge and
magistrate judge to whom the first filed action was assigned.
Therefore, IT IS ORDERED that the action denominated as 2:12-cv-2551 JAM KJN is
reassigned to the undersigned for all further proceedings, and any dates currently set in the
reassigned case only are hereby VACATED. Henceforth, the caption on documents filed in the
reassigned case shall be shown as No. 2:12-cv-2551 JKS.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
Dated: April 12, 2018.
/s/James K. Singleton, Jr.
