1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT 9 FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA 10 11 CARL CASPERSON, 12 Plaintiff, 13 14 No. 2:13-cv-0481-JAM-KJN v. ORDER GOLDEN 1 CREDIT UNION, et al., 15 Defendants. 16 On March 8, 2013, plaintiff, represented by counsel, filed his original complaint. (ECF 17 18 No. 2.) Plaintiff’s counsel filed a motion to withdraw as attorney for plaintiff on October 16, 19 2013 (ECF No. 19), and District Judge John A. Mendez issued an order granting this motion on 20 December 12, 2013 (ECF No. 26). Because plaintiff was proceeding without counsel, this action 21 was referred to the undersigned pursuant to E.D. Cal. L.R. 302(c)(21). Thereafter, on April 29, 2014, plaintiff filed a proposed consent order for substitution of 22 23 attorney. (ECF No. 33.) Therein, plaintiff proposed that attorney Matthew K. J. Ninke be 24 substituted as counsel of record in place of plaintiff proceeding pro se. (Id.) On May 5, 2014, 25 District Judge John A. Mendez approved of plaintiff’s proposal and ordered that Matthew K. J. 26 Ninke be substituted as plaintiff’s attorney of record in place of plaintiff proceeding pro se. 27 //// 28 //// 1 1 Local Rule 302(c)(21) provides that magistrate judges shall conduct all appropriate pre- 2 trial proceedings in “actions in which all the plaintiffs or defendants are proceeding in propria 3 persona, including dispositive and non-dispositive motions and matters. Actions initially 4 assigned to a Magistrate Judge under this paragraph shall be referred back to the assigned Judge if 5 a party appearing in propria persona is later represented by an attorney in accordance with L.R. 6 180.” E.D. Cal. L.R. 302(c)(21). 7 In light of the appearance of counsel on plaintiff’s behalf, and with defendants also 8 represented by counsel, neither all the plaintiffs nor all the defendants in this action are 9 proceeding in propria persona. Therefore, further proceedings in this action, other than discovery 10 motions and other matters appropriately referred to the undersigned under the court’s Local 11 Rules, should now be noticed before the United States District Judge assigned to this action. 12 Accordingly, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that: 13 1. This matter is referred to the United States District Judge assigned to this action. See 14 E.D. Cal. L.R. 302(c)(21). 15 2. All dates pending before the undersigned are VACATED. 16 IT IS SO ORDERED. 17 Dated: May 6, 2014 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 2
