J. Friedland dismisses an appeal challenging the district court's denial of a motion from various organizations to intervene as defendants in a lawsuit against the Bureau of Land Management challenging the grant of two rights-of-way. The first concerned the right to use an existing natural gas pipeline and the second to use that pipeline to transport water across federal lands in California. While the appeal was pending, the district court held that the decision to grant the rights-of-way was arbitrary.
