For civil cases, Judge Nye, Judge Winmill and Judge Lodge are randomly assigned approximately two-thirds of all civil matters. Additionally, if a party requests reassignment of a civil matter to a district judge after having been assigned a magistrate judge, the matter will be randomly assigned to either Judge Nye, Judge Winmill or Judge Lodge.
