Table of Contents

R641-103-100. Order Granting Leave to Intervene Required.

Any person, not a party, desiring to intervene in a formal proceeding will obtain an order from the Board granting leave to intervene before being allowed to participate. The hearing examiner shall not have the authority to grant a leave to intervene. Such order will be requested by means of a signed, written petition to intervene which shall be filed with the Board by the Response Date and copy promptly mailed to each party by the petitioner. Any petition to intervene or materials filed after the date a response is due under R641-105-200 may be considered at the Board's next regularly scheduled meeting only upon separate motion of the intervenor made at or before the hearing for good cause shown.

110. Content of Petition. Petitions for leave to intervene must identify the proceeding by title and by docket and cause number, to the extent determinable. The petition must contain a statement of facts demonstrating that the petitioner's legal rights or interests are substantially affected by the formal adjudicative proceedings, or that the petitioner qualifies as an intervenor under any provision of law. Additionally, the petition shall include a statement of the relief, including the basis thereof, that the petitioner seeks from the Board.

120. Response to Petition. Any party to a proceeding in which intervention is sought may make an oral or written response to the petition for intervention. Such response will state the basis for opposition to intervention and may suggest limitations to be placed upon the intervenor if intervention is granted. The response must be presented or filed at or before the hearing.

130. Granting of Petition. The Board shall grant a petition for intervention if it determines that:

131. The petitioner's legal interests may be substantially affected by the formal adjudicative proceedings, and

132. The interests of justice and the orderly and prompt conduct of the adjudicative proceedings will not be materially impaired by allowing the intervention.

140. Order Requirements.

141. Any order granting or denying a petition to intervene shall be in writing and sent by mail to the petitioner and each party.

142. An order permitting intervention may impose conditions on the intervenor's participation in the adjudicative proceeding that are necessary for a just, orderly, and prompt conduct of the adjudicative proceeding.

143. The Board may impose conditions at any time after the intervention.

144. If it appears during the course of the proceeding that an intervenor has no direct or substantial interest in the proceeding and that the public interest does not require the intervenor's participation therein, the Board may dismiss the intervenor from the proceeding.

145. In the interest of expediting a hearing, the Board may limit the extent of participation from an intervenor. Where two or more intervenors have substantially like interests and positions, the Board may at any time during the hearing limit the number of intervenors who will be permitted to testify, cross-examine witnesses or make and argue motions and objections.
