GREENPOINT MORTGAGE FUNDING INC., ET AL., DEFENDANTS
Plaintiffs, proceeding pro se, commenced this action on February 28, 2012, by filing a complaint and paying the required filing fee. (Doc. No. 1.) Accordingly, this matter was referred to the undersigned pursuant to Local Rule 302(c)(21). However, on October 9, 2012, the undersigned signed an order granting plaintiffs' request to substitute attorney Linda Z. Voss into this action on plaintiffs' behalf. (Doc. No. 16.)

The assigned magistrate judge shall continue to perform all duties described in Local Rule 302(c)(1)-(20).
Accordingly, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that:
1. This matter is referred back to the District Judge assigned to this action;
2. All dates pending before the undersigned are vacated; and
3. Henceforth the caption on documents filed in this action shall be No. 2:12-cv-0522 LKK DAD with the "PS" designation being eliminated.*fn1
IT IS SO ORDERED.
