Cases appropriate for consolidation shall be consolidated with the lowest number case unless otherwise ordered by the administrative judge. When a case with a higher number is consolidated with a case having a lower number, the judge assigned to the case with the higher number shall order the consolidation after conferring with the judge with the lower number case, if such case is in another division.
When cases are filed under two different Chapters (60-61-59-38) the judge shall notify in writing the judge succeeding to the case.
Any case dismissed and refiled shall be transferred to the same division to which it was previously assigned. (See Supreme Court Rule 107 and K.S.A. 60-242(a).)
