1 UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT 2 DISTRICT OF NEVADA 3 Gallagher-Kaiser Corporation, 4 Plaintiff Case No.: 2:14-cv-00869-JAD-NJK 5 v. 6 Liberty Duct, LLC, et al. 7 Defendants 8 9 Desert Mechanical, Inc., Plaintiff 10 11 Case No.: 2:15-cv-02298-GMN-DJA v. Travelers Casualty and Surety Co. of 12 America, 13 Defendant 14 Archer Western Contractors, LLC, 15 Plaintiff Case No.: 2:17-cv-03032-GMN-NJK 16 v. 17 The Erection Company, Inc., et al., 18 19 Defendants Fisk Electric Company, 20 21 22 23 Plaintiff v. Archer Western Contractors, LLC, Defendant Case No.: 2:20-cv-02341-APG-BNW 1 Archer Western Contractors, LLC, 2 Case No.: 2:21-cv-00402-APG-DJA Plaintiff 3 v. 4 Gallagher-Kaiser Corporation, et al., 5 Defendants 6 and all other claims and parties 7 8 9 TRANSFER ORDER 10 These five cases, spread across three United States District Judges and two United States 11 Magistrate Judges, 1 relate to the same construction projects: an air-traffic control tower and 12 terminal radar approach control at McCarran International Airport. Motions to consolidate these 13 cases into the earliest-filed action, Gallagher-Kaiser Corporation v. Liberty Duct, LLC, Case No. 14 2:14-cv-00869-JAD-NJK, have been filed, but a conflict prevents the judge assigned to that case 15 from accepting transfer of some of the later-filed actions. Nevertheless, the undersigned judges 16 have determined that assignment of these actions to a single district and magistrate judge would 17 save substantial duplication of labor and is likely to effect a substantial savings of judicial effort. 18 Therefore, Local Rule 42-1(a) permits the assigned judges to transfer these five cases to the 19 jurists assigned the next-oldest related action, Desert Mechanical, Inc. v. Travelers Casualty & 20 Surety Company of America, Case No.: 2:15-cv-02298-GMN-DJA. 21 22 23 1 Two other seemingly related cases (2:12-cv-00612-MMD-NJK and 2:15-cv-02150-RFB-PAL) have already terminated and are not part of this transfer order. 2 1 IT IS THEREFORE ORDERED that Case Nos. 2:14-cv-00869-JAD-NJK; 2:20-cv- 2 02341-APG-BNW; and 2:21-cv-00402-APG-DJA are TRANSFERRED to United States 3 District Judge Gloria M. Navarro and United States Magistrate Judge Daniel J. Albregts. 4 Dated April 27, 2021 5 _________________________________ U.S. District Judge Gloria M.
