SEC MOTION TO INTERVENE AND TO SUSPEND THE MEMORANDUM OPINION AND ORDER OF JULY 3, 2012

By Matthew T. Martens
Applicant U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC” or “Commission”) respectfully submits this memorandum of law in response to Robert Cheatham’s Motion To Intervene and To Suspend the Memorandum Opinion and Order of July 3, 2012 (“Motion To Intervene”).

Mr. Cheatham contends that he may intervene as of right in this proceeding pursuant to Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 24(a)(2). That provision states that intervention must be granted as of right, “[o]n timely motion,” to anyone who “claims an interest relating to the property or transaction that is the subject of the action, and is so situated that disposing of the action may as a practical matter impair or impede the movant’s ability to protect its interest, unless existing parties adequately represent that interest.” In other words, the right of a party to intervene depends on the following four factors:

(1) the timeliness of the motion; (2) whether the applicant “claims an interest relating to the property or transaction which is the subject of the action”; (3) whether “the applicant is so situated that the disposition of the action may as a practical matter impair or impede the applicant’s ability to protect that interest”; and (4) whether “the applicant’s interest is adequately represented by existing parties.”.
