SIERRA CLUB, INC. v. EPA, 03-4174

In a case involving a petition for review challenging the EPA's issuance of a permit to construct a 660-megawatt coal-fired power plant, the builder's motion to intervene in the court of appeals is granted because its legal interests are at stake. Because FRAP rule 15(d) does not provide standards for intervention, the appellate court appropriately turns to rules governing intervention in the district courts under FRCP rule 24.
