The parties should be aware that relating the cases under ted with pdfFactory trial version www.pdffactory.com Local Rule 123 merely has the result that these actions are 2 assigned to the same judge; no consolidation of the actions is 3 effected.

Mendez for all further 8 proceedings, and any dates currently set in this reassigned case 9 only are hereby VACATED.

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