Environmental Defense Fund v. Costle

Citation: 8 ELR 20788
No. Nos. 78-1471 et al., 439 F. Supp. 980/12 ERC 1255/(D.C. Cir., 07/31/1978) Aff'd

The appellate court affirms the district court's denial of intervention to appellants. Because the states in which appellants are located had already been granted intervention in the litigation, appellants must be held to a greater showing of interest in order to qualify for intervention as of right. Despite the states' failure to oppose the intervention, that showing was not made below, and the appeal is denied.

Counsel are listed at 8 ELR 20782.
