The allegations in each of these cases are nearly identical, save for the 20 different IP addresses through which ME2 claims that the defendants used to access the 21 film. 22 Having reviewed these cases, the judges of this district have concluded that 23 judicial economy will be served by transferring all of these ME2 Mechanic: Resurrection 24 cases to a single District Court Judge and Magistrate Judge. Accordingly, THE 25 UNDERSIGNED JUDGES—exercising their discretion under local rule 42-1(a) and the 26 court’s inherent power to control the management of the docket and in order to foster 27 judicial economy—HEREBY ORDER each of these cases to be TRANSFERRED to 28 Judge James C.
