John Allen Rainwater v. John Mcginniss

IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA


February 1, 2011

JOHN ALLEN RAINWATER, PLAINTIFF,
v.
JOHN MCGINNISS, SHERIFF, ET AL., DEFENDANTS.

The opinion of the court was delivered by: Gregory G. Hollows United States Magistrate Judge

RELATED CASE ORDER

Plaintiff is a civil detainee proceeding pro se. He seeks relief pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983.

Petitioner seeks relief concerning the conditions of his confinement at Sacramento County Jail. Review of court records indicate that plaintiff already has a pending civil rights case concerning another period of confinement at Sacramento County Jail, but involving the exact same conditions. See No. CIV S-10-1727 GGH P.*fn1

Examination of the above-entitled actions reveals that these cases are related within the meaning of Local Rule 123(a). The actions involve the same property, transaction or event and similar questions of fact and the same question of law. Accordingly, assignment of the matters to the same judge is likely to effect a substantial saving of judicial effort and is also likely to be convenient for the parties.

The parties should be aware that relating the cases under Local Rule 123 merely has the result that the actions are assigned to the same judge; no consolidation of the actions is effected. Under the regular practice of this court, related cases are generally assigned to the judge and magistrate judge to whom the first filed action was assigned.

Therefore, IT IS ORDERED that the action denominated as No. CIV S-11-0030 JFM P is reassigned to Magistrate Judge Gregory Hollows for all further proceedings. Henceforth, the caption on documents filed in the reassigned case shall be shown as No. CIV S-11-0030 GGHP.

IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that the Clerk of the Court make appropriate adjustment in the assignment of cases to compensate for this reassignment.
