Civil actions: intervention.

Abstract

Under existing law, any person who has an interest in a matter in litigation, or in the success of either of the parties, or an interest against both, may intervene in the action or proceeding. Existing law provides that a third person may become a party to an action or proceeding between other persons, either by joining the plaintiff in claiming what is sought by the complaint, uniting with the defendant in resisting the claims of the plaintiff, or demanding anything adversely to both the plaintiff and the defendant, by filing a complaint setting forth the grounds upon which the intervention rests, as specified. This bill would require that a nonparty seeking to intervene in an action or proceeding, deemed the intervenor, petition the court for leave to intervene by noticed motion or ex parte application setting forth the grounds upon which the intervention rests, and would require the intervenor to include a copy of the proposed complaint in intervention or answer in intervention with the petition. If leave to intervene is granted by the court, the bill would also require the intervenor to serve the order, or notice of the court's decision or order, granting leave to intervene and the pleadings in intervention on all other parties in the action or proceeding, as specified. The bill would also recast some provisions of existing law and make conforming changes to other provisions of law.
