IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE MIDDLE DISTRICT OF PENNSYLVANIA


April 18, 2013

DIANNA STEPP, ON BEHALF
OF M.S. AND MICHAEL STEPP, ON BEHALF OF M.S., PLAINTIFFS,
v.
THE MIDD-WEST SCHOOL DISTRICT, DEFENDANT. DIANNA STEPP, ON BEHALF
OF M.S. AND MICHAEL STEPP, ON BEHALF OF M.S., PLAINTIFFS,
v.
THE MIDD-WEST SCHOOL DISTRICT, DEFENDANT.

The opinion of the court was delivered by: (Judge Brann)

(Magistrate Judge Blewitt)

ORDER

BACKGROUND:

On April 11, 2013, Magistrate Judge Thomas M. Blewitt issued a six-page report and recommendation in each of the above two captioned cases, granting the concurred-in motions to consolidate. (Doc. Nos. 9 and 7). The undersigned will adopt the report and recommendations*fn1 of Magistrate Judge Blewitt and will consolidate the actions.

In addition to the consolidation request, the parties requested that the case be transferred to the Harrisburg Division of this Court. It appears that the desire for a change of location is predicated not so much for the convenience of the plaintiffs and the employees of the defendant, who appear to reside equidistant between Harrisburg and Williamsport, but for the attorneys who practice in Harrisburg and Carlisle, respectively. The undersigned sits in Williamsport, and it is difficult for the undersigned and his staff to travel to Harrisburg, particularly in light of recent sequestration efforts. This request will be addressed with the parties and their counsel at the time of the pre-trial conference.

NOW, THEREFORE, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED THAT:

1. The Report and Recommendations of Magistrate Judge Blewitt are ADOPTED in part. Report and Recommendation, April 11, 2013, ECF Nos. 7 and 9.

2. The clerk is directed to close 4:12-CV-2348 and consolidate that action into 4:12-CV-2290.

2. 4:12-CV-2290 is referred back to Magistrate Judge Blewitt for further proceedings.
