ORDER granting 16 Motion for Leave to File Brief of Amicus Curiae. Proposed brief shall be accepted for filing, by Judge John L. Kane on 6/4/12.(gmssl, )
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE DISTRICT OF COLORADO
Judge John L. Kane
Civil Case No. 12-cv-00048-AP
NATIONAL SKI AREAS ASSOCIATION, INC.,
UNITED STATES FOREST SERVICE, an agency of the United States Department of
UNITED STATES DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE, and
HARRIS SHERMAN, Under Secretary for Natural Resources and Environment of United
States Department of Agriculture
This matter is currently before me on the Motion for Leave to File Brief of Amicus
Curiae (doc. 16), filed by the Colorado River Water Conservation District, Ute Water
Conservancy District, Eagle River Water and Sanitation District, Upper Eagle Regional Water
Authority, Clinton Ditch & Reservoir Company, and Eagle Park Reservoir Company. After
reviewing that motion, and the proposed amicus brief, I find these parties have “unique
information or perspective that can help the court beyond the help that the lawyers for the parties
are able to provide.” Cobell v. Norton, 246 F. Supp. 2d 59, 62 (D.D.C. 2003).
Accordingly, the motion is GRANTED. The proposed amicus brief (doc. ) shall be
accepted for filing.
Dated: June 4, 2012
BY THE COURT:
/s/ John L. Kane
Senior U.S. District Court Judge
