Movant Bob Kohn, on his own behalf and by his attorneys, and pursuant to 15 U.S.C.
§16(f)(3) and Rule 24 of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, hereby moves for leave to

that, absent his participation, appellate review of the issues raised by Movant in his public
submissions in this matter opposing the the Court’s judgment and public interest determination
will be foreclosed.
