UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
August 11, 2010
GREGG A. STANFORD, PLAINTIFF,
OCWEN FEDERAL BANK, FSB, OCWEN LOAN SERVICING, LLC, AND LASALLE NATIONAL BANK, DEFENDANTS.
ORDER OF RECUSAL
It was not brought to the court's attention until counsel for defendants filed their motion to appear by phone at the hearing on defendants' motion to dismiss that the Bank of America is the successor by merger to defendant LaSalle National Bank Association. Because the spouse of one of my law clerks owns a small amount of stock in the Bank of America, I must accordingly recuse myself from this case for the reasons stated in Amstadter v. Bank of America, Civ. No. 2:09-2826, 2009 WL 5206640 (E.D. Cal. Dec. 22, 2009).
IT IS THEREFORE ORDERED that the Clerk of the Court reassign this case to another judge for all further proceedings, making appropriate adjustments in the assignments of civil cases to compensate for such reassignment.
