DEFENDANT TO INFORM
COURT WHETHER HE
CONSENTS TO MAGISTRATE
JUDGE FOR ALL PURPOSES
MICHAEL J. ASTRUE,
For the Northern District of California
United States District Court
No. C 12-01041 JSW
On December 12, 2012, Plaintiff filed a notice that he consents to proceed before a
Magistrate Judge for all purposes. 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). Accordingly, the Defendant is hereby
DIRECTED to advise the Court, no later than December 21, 2012, as to whether he consents to
have a magistrate judge conduct all further proceedings in the instant action.1 Consent forms
are available at http://www.cand.uscourts.gov, in the “Forms” section. The parties are further
advised that they may jointly request assignment to a specific magistrate judge.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
Dated: December 13, 2012
JEFFREY S. WHITE
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.
