RELATED CASE ORDER ALLEN DISTRIBUTION, LP, 21 22 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 similar questions of fact and the same 26 question of law and their assignment to the same Judge or Magistrate Judge is likely to effect a 27 substantial savings of judicial effort.” Local Rule 123(a)(3). Accordingly, the assignment of 28 1 1 these matters to the same judge is likely to effect a substantial savings of judicial effort and is 2 likely to be convenient for the parties. 3 The parties should be aware that relating cases under Rule 123 causes the actions 4 to be assigned to the same judge – it does not consolidate the actions. Under Rule 123, related 5 cases are generally assigned to the judge and magistrate judge to whom the first filed action was 6 assigned. 7 As a result, it is hereby ORDERED that Civ. No. 2:20-cv-01710 MCE KJN is 8 reassigned from Judge Morrison C. England to the undersigned and from Magistrate Judge 9 Kendall J. Newman to Magistrate Judge Carolyn K. Delaney. Henceforth, the caption on 10 11 12 13 14 documents filed in the reassigned case shall be shown as: Civ. No. 2:20-cv-01710 KJM CKD. 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: October 14, 2020. 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 2
