The Court has carefully considered the Motion, notes that it is unopposed, and is otherwise fully advised in the premises. A party may intervene as of right when the party files a timely motion claiming "an interest relating to the property or transaction that is the subject of the action," and the party "is so situated disposing of the action may as a practical matter impair or impede the movant's ability to protect that interest, unless the applicant's interest is adequately represented by existing parties." Fed. R. Civ. P. 24(a)(2). According to LaSalle Bank Midwest National Association ("LaSalle Bank"), it has acquired the interest in a loan made to Plaintiff Hollywood Mobile Estates Limited, which the Plaintiff used to purchase an existing mobile home park on the Magistrate Judge Rosenbaum 1 premises that are the subject of the dispute in this case.

LaSalle Bank claims a direct, substantial and legally protectible interest in the property at issue, that its ability to protect its interest may be affected by the litigation, and that the existing parties do not adequately represent its interests. Accordingly, it is ORDERED AND ADJUDGED that LaSalle Bank Midwest National Association's Motion for Leave to Intervene in Litigation [DE 37] is hereby GRANTED. DONE AND ORDERED in Chambers at Fort Lauderdale, Broward County, Florida this 24th day of September, 2008. Copies furnished to: Bruce S. Rogow, Esq. Cynthia E. Hollifield, Esq. John M. Mullin, Esq.
