JOHN DONNELLY SWEENEY and POINT BUCKLER CLUB, LLC, Defendants. 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 the same parties and are based on the 26 same or a similar claim,” Local Rule 123(a)(1), and “both actions involve the same property, 27 transaction, or event,” Local Rule 123(a)(2). 28 1 1 The parties should be aware that relating cases under Rule 123 causes the actions 2 to be assigned to the same judge – it does not consolidate the actions. Under Rule 123, related 3 cases are generally assigned to the judge and magistrate judge to whom the first filed action was 4 assigned. 5 As a result, it is hereby ORDERED that Case No. 2:17-cv-00112-MCE-EFB is 6 reassigned from United States District Judge Morrison C. England, Jr. to the undersigned and 7 from Magistrate Judge Edmund F. Brennan to Magistrate Judge Kendall J. Newman. 8 Henceforth, the caption on documents filed in the reassigned case shall be shown as 2:17-cv- 9 00112-KJM-KJN. 10 11 12 13 It is further ORDERED that the Clerk of the Court make appropriate adjustment in the assignment of civil cases to compensate for this reassignment.
