Tineo v. Kijakazi
ORDER: By Order dated November 17, 2021, the Court referred this case to the assigned Magistrate Judge for a report and recommendation on any motion for judgment on the pleadings. To conserve resources, to promote judicial efficiency, and in an e ffort 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 the assigned Magistrate Jud ge. If both parties consent to proceed before the Magistrate Judge, counsel for the defendant must, within two weeks of the date of this Order, either mail or email directly a fully executed Notice, Consent, and Reference of a Civil Action to a Ma gistrate Judge form, a copy of which is attached to this order (and also available at https://www.nysd.uscomis.gov/forms/consentproceed-us-magistrate-judge ). If the Court approves that form, all further proceedings will then be conducted before th e assigned Magistrate Judge rather than before me. An information sheet on proceedings before magistrate judges is also attached to this order. Any appeal would be taken directly to the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit, as it would be if the consent form were not signed and so ordered. If either party does not consent to conducting all further proceedings before the assigned Magistrate Judge, the parties must file a joint letter, within two weeks of this Order, advisin g the Court that the parties do not consent, but without disclosing the identity of the party or parties who do not consent. The parties are free to withhold consent without negative consequences. (Signed by Judge Paul A. Engelmayer on 11/17/2021) (rro)
