PNC Bank, N.A. v. Kim

United States District Court, D. Hawaii

March 15, 2019

PNC BANK, N.A., Plaintiffs,
v.
JAMES KEONE KIM, et al., Defendants.

          ORDER DENYING WITHOUT PREJUDICE PNC BANK, N.A.'S MOTION TO CONSOLIDATE ACTIONS OR, IN THE ALTERNATIVE, FOR ASSIGNMENT PURSUANT TO L.R. 40.2

          Jill A. Otake, Judge

         Before the Court is Plaintiff PNC Bank N.A.'s (“Plaintiff”) Motion to Consolidate Actions or, in the Alternative, for Assignment Pursuant to L.R. 40.2. Doc. No. 51. Plaintiff contends that consolidation or reassignment will promote efficiency and avoid inconsistency. Defendants argue that consolidation or reassignment at this stage of the proceedings would inhibit judicial economy, and that allowing different judges to issue rulings in this matter will more likely result in the correct legal outcome. For the reasons set forth below, the Court DENIES the Motion without prejudice.

         BACKGROUND
