.10 Consolidation.

A. When Petitions involving a common question of law or fact are pending, the Court, on its own motion, or upon application of any party for good cause shown, may order a joint hearing or trial of any or all of the matters in issue; order any or all of the cases consolidated for trial; and make such orders governing the proceedings as may tend to avoid unnecessary costs or delay.

B. When subsequent petitions involve the same issues as a petition previously filed, the Court may order said subsequent petitions withheld from the hearing docket to abide the ultimate result of the hearing of the prior petition, or any appeals therefrom.
