SHANZE ENTERPRISES, INC. d/b/a BAJA AUTO INSURANCE, and DOES 110, Defendants. 17 18 19 ___________________________________ SHANZE ENTERPRISES, INC.

AMERICAN CASUALTY COMPANY OF READING, PA, Defendant. 25 26 Examination of the above-captioned actions reveals that they are related within the 27 meaning of Local Rule 123(a). Here, “both actions involve similar questions of fact and the same 28 1 1 question of law and their assignment to the same Judge or Magistrate Judge is likely to effect a 2 substantial savings of judicial effort.” Local Rule 123(a)(3). Accordingly, the assignment of 3 these matters to the same judge is likely to effect a substantial savings of judicial effort and is 4 likely to be convenient for the parties. 5 The parties should be aware that relating cases under Rule 123 causes the actions 6 to be assigned to the same judge – it does not consolidate the actions. Under Rule 123, related 7 cases are generally assigned to the judge and magistrate judge to whom the first filed action was 8 assigned. 9 As a result, it is hereby ORDERED that 2:14-cv-02623-JAM-AC is reassigned 10 from John A. Mendez to the undersigned. Henceforth, the caption on documents filed in the 11 reassigned case shall be shown as: 2:14-cv-02623-KJM-AC. 12 13 14 15 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: November 18, 2014. 16 17 18 UNITED STATES DISTRICT JUDGE 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 2
