PACIFICORP, Defendant. 16 17 No. 2:21-cv-00801-MCE-CKD ERIN HILLMAN, et al., 18 No. 2:21-cv-00848-KJM-AC Plaintiffs, 19 v. 20 PACIFICORP, 21 Defendant. 22 23 24 /// 25 /// 26 /// 27 /// 28 1 1 An examination of the above-entitled civil actions reveals that these actions are 2 related within the meaning of Local Rule 123(a) (E.D. Cal. 1997). The actions involve 3 the same defendant and are based on the same or similar claims, the same property 4 transaction or event, similar questions of fact and the same questions of law and would 5 therefore entail a substantial duplication of labor if heard by different judges. 6 Accordingly, the assignment of the matters to the same judge is likely to effect a 7 substantial savings of judicial effort and is also likely to be convenient for the parties. 8 The parties should be aware that relating the cases under Local Rule 123 merely 9 has the result that both actions are assigned to the same judge; no consolidation of the 10 action is effected. Under the regular practice of this court, related cases are generally 11 assigned to the district judge and magistrate judge to whom the first filed action was 12 assigned. 13 IT IS THEREFORE ORDERED that the action denominated 2:21-cv-00848-KJM- 14 AC, Erin Hillman, et al., v. PacificCorp, is reassigned to Senior District Judge Morrison C. 15 England, Jr. and will be reassigned to Magistrate Carolyn K. Delaney for all further 16 proceedings, and any dates currently set in this reassigned case only are hereby 17 VACATED. The caption on documents filed in the reassigned case shall be shown as 18 2:21-cv-00848-MCE-CKD. 19 IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that the Clerk of the Court make appropriate adjustment in 20 the assignment of civil cases to compensate for this reassignment. 21 22 IT IS SO ORDERED.
