Consolidation of Multiple Cases

In re Amfels, Inc., 129 S.W.3d 810 (Tex. App.—Corpus Christi 2004, pet. denied).(Transfer of Cases; Administrative Judges)
The local administrative judge, rather than the Court of Appeals, should hear mandamus issues arising when multiple silicosis cases filed in same county are consolidated in a single court. The local administrative judge is statutorily charged with implementing and executing the local rules of administration, including transfer of cases, is required to supervise the expeditious movement of court caseloads, and is in the best position to interpret county’s relevant local rules.
