DEBRA A. MELANCON,
No. C-11-5225 MMC
ORDER DIRECTING DEFENDANT TO
INFORM COURT WHETHER HE
CONSENTS TO MAGISTRATE JUDGE
FOR ALL PURPOSES
MICHAEL J. ASTRUE,
In cases initially assigned to a district judge, the parties may consent at any time to
reassignment of the case to a magistrate judge for all purposes, including entry of final
judgment. See Civil L.R. 73-1(b). On October 28, 2011, plaintiff Debra A. Melancon
voluntarily consented to have a United States Magistrate Judge conduct any and all further
proceedings in the case, including trial, and order entry of a final judgment. Accordingly,
defendant Michael J. Astrue is hereby DIRECTED to advise the Court, no later than
December 2, 2011, as to whether he consents to have a magistrate judge conduct all
further proceedings in the instant action.1
IT IS SO ORDERED.
Dated: November 16, 2011
MAXINE M. CHESNEY
United States District Judge
Normally, the Court would direct the parties to so inform the Court in their Joint
Case Management Statement filed in connection with a case management conference.
Because the instant action involves a review of an administrative record, however, a case
management conference has not been scheduled.
