59-2402. District magistrate judges; certification of questions outside judge's jurisdiction. In any proceeding pending in the district court before a district magistrate judge, when it appears that a decision upon any question of which such judge does not have jurisdiction is necessary to a full determination of the proceeding, such question shall be submitted to the chief judge. The chief judge may assign the entire case to a district judge or may assign just the question to a district judge for determination, after which the case may be reassigned to the district magistrate judge.
