NOT RELATED 9 WELLS FARGO BANK, N.A., Re: Dkt. No. 36 10 Defendant. 11 12 Northern District of California United States District Court 13 Before the Court is a sua sponte judicial referral for the purpose of determining whether 14 Smith v. Wells Fargo Bank, N.A. et al, numbered 15-cv-01779-YGR, is related to the above- 15 captioned matter. The time to file an opposition or statement of support has passed. 16 The Court finds that these cases are not related under Civil Local Rule 3-12(a)(2), which 17 provides that cases are related if "[i]t appears likely that there will be an unduly burdensome 18 duplication of labor and expense or conflicting results if the cases are conducted before different 19 Judges." Because the above-captioned matter was terminated on April 24, 2015 prior to the 20 issuance of any substantive rulings by this Court, there will be no duplication of labor and expense 21 or risk of conflicting results if the cases are conducted before different judges. 22 IT IS SO ORDERED. 23 Dated: 10/28/2015 24 ______________________________________ HAYWOOD S. GILLIAM, JR. 25 United States District Judge 26 27 28
