RELATED CASE ORDER
On June 21, 2011, the United States of America filed a "Notice of Related Cases" in which it states:
[T]he above-entitled actions are related within the meaning of Local Rule 123 because the civil forfeiture action and the criminal action arise from the same law enforcement investigation and thus involve substantially the same events, transactions, and owners.
For the foregoing reasons, the United States respectfully requests that the two cases be assigned to a single district judge.
(ECF No. 21, 1:26-2:5.)
Examination of the above-entitled actions reveals they are related within the meaning of Local Rule 123. Under the regular practice of this court, related cases are generally assigned to the judge to whom the first filed action was assigned. Therefore, action 2:11-cr-00226 is reassigned to the undersigned judge for all further proceedings, and the caption on the reassigned cases shall show the initials "GEB." Further, any date currently set in the reassigned case is VACATED. The Clerk shall make an appropriate adjustment in the assignment of criminal cases to compensate for this reassignment.
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that a Status Conference is scheduled to commence at 9:00 a.m. on July 22, 2011 in action 2:11-cr-00226.
