UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT WESTERN DISTRICT OF NEW YORK PAUL D. CEGLIA, Plaintiff, v. MARK ELLIOT ZUCKERBERG, FACEBOOK, INC., DECISION and ORDER 10-CV-569A(F) Defendants. JAMES CHARLES KOPP, Movant. APPEARANCES: PAUL A. ARGENTIERI, ESQ. Attorney for Plaintiff 188 Main Street Hornell, New York 14843 BOLAND LEGAL, LLC Attorney for Plaintiff DEAN M. BOLAND, of Counsel 18123 Sloane Avenue Lakewood, Ohio 44107 GIBSON, DUNN & CRUTCHER, LLP Attorneys for Defendants ORIN S. SNYDER, ALEXANDER H. SOUTHWELL, THOMAS H. DUPREE, JR., of Counsel 200 Park Avenue, 47th Floor New York, New York 10166-0193 HARRIS BEACH LLP Attorneys for Defendants TERRANCE P. FLYNN, of Counsel Larkin at Exchange 726 Exchange Street, Suite 1000 Buffalo, New York 14210 JAMES CHARLES KOPP (11761-055), Pro Se Movant Canaan USP P.O. Box 300 Inmate Mail/Parcels Waymart, Pennsylvania 18472 By papers filed November 5, 2012 (Doc. No. 585), one James Charles Kopp, as identified in the papers (“Movant”), moves to intervene pursuant to Fed.R.Civ.P. 24 (“the motion”). On November 19, 2012, Defendants filed Defendants’ Response To Motion to Intervene (Doc. No. 598) opposing the motion (“Defendants’ Response”). Based on the reasons and authorities as set forth in Defendants’ Response, the motion should be denied. The motion fails to identify any interest justifying Movant’s participation in this case and allowing intervention at this time is likely to unduly delay the proceedings particularly the court’s consideration of the merits of Defendants’ motions to dismiss (Doc. No. 318) and for summary judgment (Doc. No. 320). CONCLUSION Based on the foregoing, the motion (Doc. No. 585) is DENIED. SO ORDERED. /s/ Leslie G. Foschio ________________________________ LESLIE G.
