1 UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT 2 NORTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA 3 4 ANTHONY C. KIMMIS, Plaintiff, 5 6 7 8 Case No.: 12-CV-04206-YGR vs. MICHAEL J. ASTRUE, Commissioner, Social Security Administration, ORDER DIRECTING PARTIES TO INFORM COURT WHETHER THEY CONSENT TO MAGISTRATE JUDGE FOR ALL PURPOSES Defendant. 9 reassignment of the case to a magistrate judge for all purposes, including entry of final judgment. 12 Northern District of California In cases initially assigned to a district judge, the parties may consent at any time to 11 United States District Court 10 See Civil L.R. 73-1(b). This option is being made available because the magistrate judges in this 13 district have smaller civil dockets and no felony criminal cases and may be able to adjudicate this 14 case more expeditiously than the undersigned district judge. 15 16 Accordingly, the parties are hereby DIRECTED to advise the Court, no later than November 17 16, 2012, whether they consent to have a magistrate judge conduct all further proceedings in the 18 instant action. Normally the parties would be directed to so inform the court in their Joint Case 19 Management Statement filed in connection with the initial case management conference. However, 20 21 because this case involves a review of an administrative record, a case management conference has 22 not been scheduled. For the parties’ convenience, a consent form is attached hereto; forms are also 23 available at, in the “Forms” section. The parties are further advised 24 that they may jointly request assignment to a specific magistrate judge. 25 IT IS SO ORDERED. 26 27 28 Dated: November 8, 2012 _________________________________________ YVONNE GONZALEZ ROGERS UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT JUDGE
