stay and consolidation of actions


Explanation:
Art. 39

(Litispendenza e continenza di cause)

Se una stessa causa è proposta davanti a giudici diversi, quello successivamente adito, in qualunque stato e grado del processo, anche d'ufficio dichiara con sentenza la litispendenza e dispone con ordinanza la cancellazione della causa dal ruolo.

Nel caso di continenza di cause, se il giudice preventivamente adito è competente anche per la causa proposta successivamente, il giudice di questa dichiara con sentenza la continenza e fissa un termine perentorio entro il quale le parti debbono riassumere la causa davanti al primo giudice. Se questi non è competente anche per la causa successivamente proposta, la dichiarazione della continenza e la fissazione del termine sono da lui pronunciate.

La prevenzione è determinata dalla notificazione della citazione.

(Codice di procedura civile)

CONSOLIDATION RULE - When a number of actions are brought on the same policy, it is a practice, for the purpose of saving costs, to consolidate them by a rule of court or judge's order which restrains the plaintiff from proceeding to trial in more than one and binds the defendants in all the others to abide the event of that one; but this is done upon condition that the defendant shall not file any bill in equity or bring any writ of error for delay.

The term consolidation seems to be rather misapplied in those cases, for in point of fact there is a mere stay of proceedings in all those cases but one. The rule is now extended to other cases: when several actions are brought on the same bond against several obligors, an order for a stay of proceedings in all but one will be made.

The plaintiff may elect to join in the same suit several causes of action in many cases, consistently with the rules of pleading, but having done so, his election is determined. He cannot ask the court to consolidate them but the court will sometimes, at the instance of the defendant, order it against the plaintiff.
Lectric Law Dictionary

they seem to be two different things and as Lectric says, perhaps I would say "stay and consolidation of actions"
