(Doc. No. 28)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE DISTRICT OF NEW JERSEY
COMITÉ DE APOYO A LOS
TRABAJADORES AGRÍCOLAS, et al.,
Thomas E. PEREZ,
Secretary of Labor, et al.,
Civil No. 15–4014 (RBK)
KUGLER, United States District Judge:
This matter comes before the Court upon the motion of Movant North America’s
Building Trades Unions (NABTU) for leave to participate as amicus curiae (Doc. No. 28).
District courts may permit third parties to appear in court as amicus curiae where they “can
contribute to the court’s understanding” of the issues being presented before the court. Harris v.
Pernsley, 820 F.2d 592, 603 (3d Cir. 1987). Because Plaintiffs failed to establish standing, this
Court does not have subject matter jurisdiction and cannot consider the substantive arguments
advanced by NABTU. As such, NABTU’s Motion is DENIED.
