IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF ILLINOIS
January 5, 2007
CARL KIRCHER, ET AL., PLAINTIFFS,
PUTNAM FUNDS TRUST, ET AL., DEFENDANTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Herndon, District Judge
Before the Court is Defendants' Motion to Consolidate (Doc. 4). As the two cases are actually identical cases, but merely at different procedural stages, the Court hereby GRANTS said Motion (Doc. 4) and CONSOLIDATES the above-captioned Case No. 06-cv-1001-DRH with Case No. 06-cv-939-DRH. In addition, the Court MOOTS Plaintiffs' Motion to Remand for Defects in Removal Procedure (Doc. 13) since Plaintiffs acknowledge that Plaintiffs' Motion to Remand filed in Case No. 06-cv-939-DRH (Doc. 10)is substantially the same in all material respects. Further proceedings in the consolidated litigation shall be docketed under the earlier case number of 06-cv-939-DRH.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
