FOR THE Northern District of Illinois - CM/ECF LIVE, Ver 3.2.2
NOTIFICATION OF DOCKET ENTRY
This docket entry was made by the Clerk on Tuesday, December 16, 2008:
MINUTE entry before the Honorable Elaine E. Bucklo: The parties' joint (88) request for a stay of this litigation for two weeks is granted. All schedules are revised accordingly. Plaintiffs in case no. 8 C 6528 motion for reassignment with this case is denied. Rule 40.4(b) requires that the two cases be susceptible of disposition in a single proceeding. That would not be possible because established case law holds that private plaintiffs may not intervene in a government antitrust case, in the absence of an exception which is not even argued here, which would be the effect of granting plaintiffs' motion. Mailed notice(mpj,)
ATTENTION: This notice is being sent pursuant to Rule 77(d) of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure or Rule 49(c) of the Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure. It was generated by CM/ECF, the automated docketing system used to maintain the civil and criminal dockets of this District. If a minute order or other document is enclosed, please refer to it for additional information.
