UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, PLAINTIFF,
SIERRA RODRIGUEZ, DEFENDANT.
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA PLAINTIFF,
STEPHEN MCKESSON, DEFENDANT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Garland E. Burrell, Jr. United States District Judge
RELATED CASE ORDER
Examination of the above-entitled actions reveals they are related within the meaning of Local Rule 83-123(a). Under the regular practice of this court, related cases are generally assigned to the judge to whom the first filed action was assigned. Accordingly, the assignment of the actions to the same judge is likely to effect a substantial savings of judicial effort and is also likely to be convenient for the parties.
THEREFORE, action 2:08-CR-462-FCD is reassigned to Judge Garland E. Burrell, Jr. for all further proceedings. Henceforth, the caption on documents filed in the reassigned case shall show the initials "GEB" instead of the other initials. Further, the status conference currently scheduled in the reassigned case on February 23, 2009, is rescheduled to commence at 9:00 a.m. on January 9, 2009, in Courtroom 10.
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that the Clerk of the Court make appropriate adjustment in the assignment of the criminal case to compensate for this reassignment.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
