No. C 06-7294 PJH
SUA SPONTE JUDICIAL
REFERRAL FOR PURPOSE
TOM BATES, et al.,
OF DETERMINING RELATIONSHIP
On November 27, 2006, plaintiff filed an application to proceed with the above-
referenced action in forma pauperis (“IFP”) pursuant to 20 U.S.C. § 1915. Concurrent with
the filing of plaintiff’s application and complaint, plaintiff also filed a Notice of Related Case,
indicating that the newly-filed action may be related to an earlier-filed action brought by
plaintiff, Foley v. Brady et al., C 06-3888 JSW.
Based upon the court’s review, it appears that plaintiff has failed to file his Notice of
Related Case in the earlier-filed action, as required by Civil Local Rule 3-12(b).
Accordingly, and in order for the relationship between both cases to be properly
determined, the court makes this sua sponte judicial referral, for determination by the
earlier-assigned Judge as to whether the cases are related.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
