SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF NEW YORK
TYANA K. MOORE,
ANDREW SAUL, Acting Commissioner of Social
21 Civ. 2104 (JPC)
JOHN P. CRONAN, United States District Judge:
To conserve resources, to promote judicial efficiency, and in an effort to achieve a faster
disposition of this matter, it is hereby ORDERED that the parties must discuss whether they are
willing to consent, under 28 U.S.C. § 636(c), to conducting all further proceedings before
Magistrate Judge Katharine H. Parker.
If both parties consent to proceed before Judge Parker, counsel for the defendant must,
within two weeks of the date of this Order, submit to the Orders & Judgments Clerk at
firstname.lastname@example.org a fully executed Notice, Consent, and Reference of a Civil Action
to a Magistrate Judge form, a copy of which is attached to this Order (and also available at
https://www.nysd.uscourts.gov/sites/default/files/2018-06/AO-3.pdf). If the Court approves that
form, all further proceedings will then be conducted before Judge Parker rather than before the
undersigned. Any appeal would be taken directly to the United States Court of Appeals for the
Second Circuit, as it would be from this Court if the consent form were not signed and so ordered.
If either party does not consent to conducting all further proceedings before Judge Parker,
the parties must file a joint letter, within two weeks of this Order, advising the Court that the parties
do not consent, but without disclosing the identity of the party or parties who do not consent. At
that time, the Court will then refer this case to Judge Parker for a report and recommendation on
any motion for judgment on the pleadings.
The parties are free to withhold consent to conducting all further proceedings before Judge
Parker without negative consequences.
