RELATED CASE ORDER
County of Siskiyou, et al.,
Examination of the above-captioned actions reveals that they are related within the
meaning of Local Rule 123(a). “[B]oth actions involve similar questions of fact and the same
question of law and their assignment to the same Judge or Magistrate Judge is likely to effect a
substantial savings of judicial effort.” Local Rule 123(a)(3). Accordingly, the assignment of
these matters to the same judge is likely to effect a substantial savings of judicial effort and is
likely to be convenient for the parties.
Relating cases under Rule 123 causes the actions to be assigned to the same judge—it
does not consolidate the actions. Under Rule 123, related cases are generally assigned to the
judge and magistrate judge to whom the first filed action was assigned.
As a result, it is hereby ORDERED that Case No. 2:22-cv-01378-DB is reassigned from
Magistrate Judge Deborah Barnes to the undersigned and Magistrate Judge Allison Claire. The
caption on documents filed in the reassigned case shall be shown as 2:22-cv-01378-KJM-AC.
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: September 15, 2022.
