DOLLAR TREE STORES, INC., et al., 15 Defendant. 16 ___________________________________ 17 RICHARD STAFFORD, 18 19 20 21 No. 2:14-CV-1465 MCE DAD Plaintiff, RELATED CASE ORDER v. DOLLAR TREE STORES, INC., Defendant. 22 23 24 Examination of the above-captioned actions reveals that they are related within the 25 meaning of Local Rule 123(a). Here, “both actions involve similar questions of fact and the same 26 question of law and their assignment to the same Judge or Magistrate Judge is likely to effect a 27 substantial savings of judicial effort.” Local Rule 123(a)(3). Accordingly, the assignment of 28 1 1 these matters to the same judge is likely to effect a substantial savings of judicial effort and is 2 likely to be convenient for the parties. 3 The parties should be aware that relating cases under Rule 123 causes the actions 4 to be assigned to the same judge – it does not consolidate the actions. Under Rule 123, related 5 cases are generally assigned to the judge and magistrate judge to whom the first filed action was 6 assigned. 7 As a result, it is hereby ORDERED that No. 2:14-cv-1465 is reassigned from 8 District Judge Morrison C. England to the undersigned and from Magistrate Judge Dale A. Drozd 9 to Magistrate Judge Caroline A. Delaney. Henceforth, the caption on documents filed in the 10 reassigned case shall be shown as: 2:14-cv-1465 KJM CKD. The motion to remand and motion 11 for partial judgment on the pleadings pending in 14-cv-1465 are set for September 26, 2014 at 12 9:00 a.m. before Judge Mueller. 13 14 15 16 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: July 29, 2014. 17 18 19 UNITED STATES DISTRICT JUDGE 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 2
