United States v. SBC Communications, Inc. and AT&T Corp.,
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
Pending before the Court is the Motion to Intervene or In the Alternative For Leave To Participate as Amici Curiae pursuant to 15 U.S.C. §16 and Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 24, filed jointly by the Wilmington Trust Company and Hughes Network Systems (collectively, the "Geotek creditors"). Upon consideration of this motion and the accompanying memorandum in support of the motion, as well as the Plaintiff United States' memorandum in opposition to this motion, it is hereby
ORDERED that the motion to intervene is denied because the Geotek creditors' private financial interests do not outweigh the public interest in competition, the creditors do not assert a legally recognized individual injury, and the interests of the public are not identical to the interests of the Geotek creditors. It is further
ORDERED that the unopposed motion for leave to participate as amici curiae is granted.
