IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
May 27, 2009
DENNIS GERALD CLAIBORNE, PLAINTIFF,
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Craig M. Kellison United States Magistrate Judge
Plaintiff, a state prisoner proceeding pro se, brings this civil rights action pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983. Pursuant to Eastern District of California Local Rules, this case was not assigned to a District Judge when the case was filed. The parties have not consented to Magistrate Judge jurisdiction and the court now finds that, in order to address defendant's pending motion to dismiss, assignment of a District Judge is appropriate. Therefore, the court will direct the random assignment of a District Judge at this time. The court will address the motion to dismiss by separate findings and recommendations.
Accordingly, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that the Clerk of the Court is directed to randomly assign a District Judge to this case and to update the docket to reflect the new case number.
