No. C11-04259 LB
ORDER (1) VACATING ENTRY OF THE PARTIES' STIPULATED
JUDGMENT AND (2) INSTRUCTING THE CLERK OF THE COURT TO
RE-OPEN THE ACTION AND REASSIGN IT TO A DISTRICT COURT JUDGE
On March 27, 2012, the court entered a Stipulated Judgment that was signed by all parties to this action, and the Clerk of the Court closed the case. Stipulated Judgment, ECF No. 19. Defendant, however, had yet to file either a consent to or a declination of magistrate jurisdiction. For this reason, the court issued an order explaining that if Defendant did not file either a consent to or a declination of magistrate jurisdiction by April 6, 2012, entry of the Stipulated Judgment would be vacated and the action would be reassigned to a District Court judge.
Defendant never did so. Accordingly, entry of the parties' Stipulated Judgment is VACATED. The court DIRECTS the Clerk of the Court to re-open this action and to reassign it to a District Court judge.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
United States Magistrate Judge
