UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT EASTERN DISTRICT OF NEW YORK
September 15, 2011
VINYL MATERIALS, INC., PLAINTIFF,
PENN COLOR, INC., DEFENDANT.
DEITSCH PLASTIC CO., INC., PLAINTIFF,
G&T INDUSTRIES, INC., VINYL MATERIALS, INC., AND PENN COLOR, INC., DEFENDANTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Seybert, District Judge:
Counsel for the parties in the above-captioned cases participated in a telephone conference with the Court on September 13, 2011 to discuss possible consolidation. The Court finds that the issues in both cases are identical and consolidation is warranted to avoid the duplicative and unnecessary use of judicial resources. See FED. R. CIV. P. 42(a).
As such, the Court ORDERS that Deitsch Plastic Co. v. G&T Indus., Inc., 11-CV-1610, and Vinyl Materials, Inc. v. Penn Color, Inc., 10-CV-0136, be consolidated. All future filings are to be docketed in the earlier-filed case, case number 10-CV- 0136. Further, the Court ORDERS that the Scheduling Order issued by Magistrate Judge Arlene Rosario Lindsay in case number 11-CV-1610 on August 17, 2011 (Docket No. 30) governs the consolidated action. The parties are directed to contact Judge Lindsay to cancel the final conference in case number 10-CV-0136 scheduled for October 24, 2011.
The Clerk of the Court is directed to consolidate these matters and to mark case number 11-CV-1610 closed.
