Judge Dale and Judge Bush each are randomly assigned the following cases: civil pro se cases; civil prisoner cases; and social security appeals. For all other civil cases, Judge Dale and Judge Bush together randomly receive approximately one-third of the civil cases. Civil matters require the consent of all parties who have appeared in the case for the matter to proceed before a magistrate judge.

In addition, Judge Dale and Judge Bush are each randomly assigned 50% of criminal class C misdemeanors and Petty Offense cases. Judge Dale and Judge Bush preside over criminal pretrial proceedings in felony cases, such as initial appearances, arraignments, detention hearings, and plea hearings.
