CALIFORNIA DEPARTMENT OF CORRECTIONS; ATTORNEY GENERAL OFFICE; EDMUND G. "JERRY" BROWN, AN INDIVIDUAL; JULIE HARLAN, AN INDIVIDUAL; DAVID J. NEIL, AN INDIVIDUAL; JILL H. TALLEY, AN INDIVIDUAL; LEWIS KUYKENDALL, AN INDIVIDUAL; KATHY BIDD, AN INDIVIDUAL; AND DOES 1-10, INCLUSIVE,
Defendants filed a "Notice of Related Matter" on November 16, 2010, stating: [T]he plaintiff herein, EDNA MILLER, in pro se, filed an action with the above-entitled Court on October 21, 2010, bearing Case Number: 2:10 CV-02850 MCE (EFB).
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Garland E. Burrell, Jr. United States District Judge
RELATED CASE ORDER
Accordingly, the Defendants herein request that the newly filed related matter be transferred to the Honorable Judge Garland E. Burrell, Jr. for all purposes.
These two cases involve the same parties; are based upon the same or similar claims; arise from the same or substantially identical,[sic] transactions, incidents or events; require the determination of the same or substantially identical questions of law or fact; and are likely to require substantial duplication of judicial resources if heard by different judges.
(ECF No. 58, 1:24-2:7.)
Examination of the above-entitled actions reveals that they are related within the meaning of Local Rule 123. Accordingly, assignment of the newer action to the undersigned judge is likely to effect a substantial savings of judicial effort.
IT IS THEREFORE ORDERED
that action 2:10-cv-02850-MCE-EFB is reassigned to the undersigned district judge and to Magistrate Judge
Dale Drozd for all further proceedings, and any dates currently set in the reassigned case are VACATED.
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED
that the caption on documents filed in the reassigned case shall show the case number as 2:10-cv-02850-GEB-DAD.
The Clerk shall make an appropriate adjustment in the assignment of civil cases to compensate for this reassignment.
