Byrne v. Colvin
ORDER DIRECTING PARTIES TO INFORM COURT WHETHER THEY CONSENT TO MAGISTRATE JUDGE FOR ALL PURPOSES. Signed by Judge Saundra Brown Armstrong on 6/26/2014. (Attachments: # 1 Consent Form)(ndr, COURT STAFF) (Filed on 6/26/2014)
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
NORTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
CAROLYN W. COLVIN,
No. C 13-4720 SBA
ORDER DIRECTING PARTIES TO
INFORM COURT WHETHER THEY
CONSENT TO MAGISTRATE JUDGE
FOR ALL PURPOSES
In cases initially assigned to a district judge, the parties may consent at any time to
For the Northern District of California
United States District Court
reassignment of the case to a magistrate judge for all purposes, including entry of final
judgment. See Civil L.R. 73-1(b). This option is being made available because the
magistrate judges in this district have smaller civil dockets and no felony criminal cases and
may be able to adjudicate this case more expeditiously than the undersigned district judge.
Accordingly, the parties are hereby DIRECTED to advise the court, no later than
July 17, 2014, whether they consent to have a magistrate judge conduct all further
proceedings in the instant action. Normally the parties would be directed to so inform the
court in their Joint Case Management Statement filed in connection with the initial case
management conference. However, because this case involves a review of an
administrative record, a case management conference has not been scheduled. The
parties are advised that they may jointly request assignment to a specific magistrate judge.
For the parties' convenience, a consent form is attached hereto; forms are also available at
http://www.cand.uscourts.gov, in the "Forms" section.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
Dated: June 26, 2014
