DONALD W. MOLLOY, District Judge.

Plaintiff Center for Biological Diversity filed this action on July 13, 2017, alleging the Federal Defendants violated the National Environmental Policy Act ("NEPA") in their preparation of an Environmental Assessment related to the Convention on the International Trade in Endangered Species of Fauna and Flora ("CITES"). A similar challenge is already pending before the Court. See WildEarth Guardians v. Hoover, CV 16-65-M-DWM.

Accordingly, IT IS ORDERED that the parties shall file a statement as to their position on consolidation with the WildEarth case on or before August 1, 2017. See Fed. R. Civ. P. 42(a)(2). As the Federal Defendants have yet to appear in this action, the plaintiff is responsible for informing them of this Order and conferring with them regarding the joint filing.
