IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF OHIO
WESTERN DIVISION AT DAYTON
BALL METAL BEVERAGE CONTAINER
Case No. 3:12-cv-33
District Judge Walter Herbert Rice
Magistrate Judge Michael R. Merz
CROWN PACKAGING TECHNOLOGY
INC., et al.,
This case was randomly assigned to the undersigned upon its filing in February 2012.
District Judge Rice has now entered a Preliminary Pretrial Conference Order which refers the
case to me for pretrial management purposes (ECF No. 71, PageID 5901). However, many of
the dates set in the Order occur after expiration of my term of office on March 1, 2018.
Therefore, I recuse myself from further judicial participation in this case and direct the
Clerk to randomly reassign the case to one of the other Magistrate Judges resident at Dayton.
September 20, 2017.
s/ Michael R. Merz
United States Magistrate Judge
