1 2 3 4 5 6 UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT 7 EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA 8 9 TIMOTHY P. DEMARTINI, et al., 10 11 12 Plaintiffs, v. MICHAEL J. DEMARTINI, et al., 13 Defendants. 14 ___________________________________ 15 TIMOTHY P. DEMARTINI, et al., 16 17 18 19 No. 2:14-cv-02722-DJC-CKD No. 2:24-cv-00415-TLN-AC Plaintiffs, v. MICHAEL J. DEMARTINI, et al., RELATED CASE ORDER Defendants. 20 21 Defendants have filed a notice of related cases in each of the above-captioned 22 actions. Examination of these actions reveals that they are related within the meaning 23 of Local Rule 123(a). Here, both actions involve the same Plaintiffs and Defendants, 24 and Defendants’ counterclaims in the later-filed matter implicate a judgment rendered 25 in the earlier-filed matter. Accordingly, the Court finds that the assignment of these 26 matters to the same judge and magistrate judge is likely to effect a substantial savings 27 of judicial effort and be convenient for the parties. See E.D. Cal. L.R. 123(a). 28 The parties should be aware that while relating cases under Rule 123 causes 1 1 the actions to be assigned to the same judge, it does not consolidate the actions. 2 Under Rule 123, related cases are generally assigned to the judge to whom the first- 3 filed action was assigned. 4 As a result, it is hereby ORDERED that 2:24-cv-00415-TLN-AC is reassigned 5 from Judge Troy L. Nunley to the undersigned. Henceforth, the caption on 6 documents filed in the reassigned cases shall be shown as 2:24-cv-00415-DJC-CKD. 7 8 It is further ORDERED that the Clerk of the Court make appropriate adjustment in the assignment of civil cases to compensate for this reassignment. 9 10 11 IT IS SO ORDERED.
