with three appeals emanating from the same case, the COA denied the request to consolidate the cases but said it would consider them together for augmenting, oral testimony, briefing and decision.

They are not combining them all together under one case number (consolidate) but they will look at them all at the same time, read the briefs together and analyze them in relation to one another when making their decisions.

Also, this means of considering the cases together also allows for judicial economy and consistency. This way you won't have three separate matters arising out of the same issues meandering through the court and resolved by three separate appellate panels. This saves time for both you and makes sure that the same panel resolves all issues presented in your cases.
