NOTICE OF RIGHT TO CONSENT TO TRIALBEFORE
A
UNITED
STATES MAGISTRATE JUDGE
The substantial criminal caseload in this Court and the requirements
of
the criminal Speedy Trial Actfrequently result in the delay in the trial
of
civil cases. Aware
of
the hardship
and
expeIlse
to
theparties, counsel, and witnesses caused
by
the delays which are beyond the control
of
the
Court,
thisnotice is to advise you
of
your right
to
trial
of
your case by
El;
United States Magistrate Judge. Bystatute,
28-
USC §636(c), Fed.R.Civ.P.
73
and
Local
Civil Rule 73.1, the parties, by consent,
can
try
their
case
by means
ofajury
trial or
beD.ch
trial before a United States Magistrate Judge. Appealsfrom judgments and
:final
orders are taken directly to the United States Court
of
Appeals
for
theDistrict
of
Columbia Circuit, in the
same
manner
as
an appeal from a judgment
of
a United StatesDistrict Judge
in
a civil case.
WHAT
IS
THE
PROCEDURE?One
of
the matters you
are
required to discuss at the meet-and-confer

is whether the case should
be
assigned to a United States Magistrate Judge for
all
purposes, including trial .
All

conSent
before the case is assigned to a Magistrate Judge for trial.
You may
consentat any time prior to
trial.
If
you expressly decline to consent or simply fail to consent eady in thecase, you are not foreclosed from consenting later in the· case. However,
a

~ e f o r e
a

of
the case. .
