Byron Chapman, 17 No. 2:15-cv-00270-MCE-EFB No. 2:17-cv-00123-MCE-EFB v. 14 No. 2:15-cv-02326-MCE-EFB RELATED CASE ORDER No. 2:17-cv-01234-TLN-AC Plaintiff, 18 v. 19 City of Lincoln, 20 Defendant. 21 22 The Court has received the Notice of Related Case filed on September 27, 2017. 23 Examination of the above-entitled civil actions reveals that these actions are 24 related within the meaning of Local Rule 123(a) (E.D. Cal. 1997). The actions involve 25 the same defendant and are based on the same or similar claims, the same property 26 transaction or event, similar questions of fact and the same questions of law, and would 27 therefore entail a substantial duplication of labor if heard by different judges. 28 1 1 2 3 Accordingly, the assignment of the matters to the same judge is likely to effect a substantial savings 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 4 has the result that both actions are assigned to the same judge; no consolidation of the 5 action is effected. Under the regular practice of this court, related cases are generally 6 assigned to the district judge and magistrate judge to whom the first filed action was 7 assigned. 8 9 IT IS THEREFORE ORDERED that the action denominated 2:17-cv-01234-TLNAC is reassigned to District Judge Morrison C. England, Jr. and Magistrate Judge 10 Edmund F. Brennan for all further proceedings, and any dates currently set in 2:17-cv- 11 01234-TLN-AC are hereby VACATED. The Clerk of the Court is to issue the Initial 12 Pretrial Scheduling Order. Henceforth, the caption on documents filed in the reassigned 13 case shall be shown as 2:17-cv-01234-MCE-EFB. 14 15 16 17 IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that the Clerk of the Court make appropriate adjustment in the assignment of cases to compensate for this reassignment. IT IS SO ORDERED. DATED: October 6, 2017 18 19 20 21 _______________________________________ MORRISON C. ENGLAND, JR. UNITED STATES DISTRICT JUDGE 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 2
