No. 2:17-cv-01492-JAM-KJN S&J RETNALS, dba TWIN CITIES EQUIPMENT RENTALS, Plaintiff, 19 v. 20 21 RELATED CASE ORDER HILTI, INC., 16 17 No. 2:16-cv-00879-MCE-KJN HILTI, INC., Defendant. 22 23 24 The Court has received the Notice of Related Case filed on July 25, 2017. 25 Examination of the above-entitled civil actions reveals that these actions are 26 related within the meaning of Local Rule 123(a) (E.D. Cal. 1997). 27 /// 28 1 1 The actions involve many of the same defendants and are based on the same or similar 2 claims, the same property transaction or event, similar questions of fact and the same 3 questions of law, and would therefore entail a substantial duplication of labor if heard by 4 different judges. 5 6 7 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 8 has the result that both actions are assigned to the same judge; no consolidation of the 9 action is effected. Under the regular practice of this court, related cases are generally 10 assigned to the district judge and magistrate judge to whom the first filed action was 11 assigned. 12 IT IS THEREFORE ORDERED that the action denominated 2:17-cv-01492-JAM- 13 KJN is reassigned to District Judge Morrison C. England, Jr. and Magistrate Judge 14 Kendall J. Newman for all further proceedings, and any dates currently set in 2:17-cv- 15 01492-JAM-KJN are hereby VACATED. The Clerk of the Court is to issue the Initial 16 Pretrial Scheduling Order. Henceforth, the caption on documents filed in the reassigned 17 case shall be shown as 2:17-cv-01492-MCE-KJN. 18 19 IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that the Clerk of the Court make appropriate adjustment in the assignment of cases to compensate for this reassignment. 20 IT IS SO ORDERED. 21 Dated: September 11, 2017 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 2
