Rule 21. Case Consolidation
A. A motion to consolidate shall be filed concurrently in all actions sought to be consolidated, with copies served upon all parties and to all judges assigned to cases sought to be consolidated.
B. Motions for consolidation shall be heard by the judge to whom the lowest case number is assigned unless otherwise ordered by the presiding judge. In determining to which judge the case or cases will be assigned, the following factors may be considered: (1) whether substantive matters have been considered in a case; (2) which judge has the most familiarity with the issues involved in the cases; (3) whether a case is reasonably viewed as the lead or principal case; or (4) any other factor serving the interest of judicial economy.
C. Unless the court orders otherwise, an order for consolidation is presumed to be for all purposes and not merely for purposes of trial.
