Williams v. Blair

IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF ILLINOIS


November 23, 2010

KATHY WILLIAMS, PLAINTIFF,
v.
JEFF BLAIR, BRIAN ZYWICKI, MIKE ORIGLIOSSO, AND DAVID MATEVY, DEFENDANTS.

The opinion of the court was delivered by: Reagan, District Judge

ORDER REASSIGNING CASE

On October 6, 2010, Plaintiff Kathy Williams filed the above-captioned action and it was randomly assigned to the undersigned District Judge. A review of the pleadings indicates that this action is closely related to Case No. 10-cv-0722-JPG, currently assigned to the Honorable J. Phil Gilbert. Specifically, these cases involves the same issues and events, the same counsel, and the same defendants; but were filed by two different plaintiffs.

The Seventh Circuit has recognized that related cases filed within the same United States District Court should be handled by a single District Judge. See, e.g., Smith v. Check-N-Go of Illinois, 200 F.3d 511, 513 n.1 (7th Cir. 1999); Blair v. Equifax Check Services, 181 F.3d 832, 839 (7th Cir. 1999). After consultation with Judge Gilbert, the undersigned Judge hereby TRANSFERS this case to Judge Gilbert for further proceedings. Counsel shall style all future pleadings herein with the suffix "-JPG" rather than the suffix "-MJR."

IT IS SO ORDERED.

MICHAEL J. REAGAN United States District Judge
