Colorado Springs v. N. Colo. Water Conservancy Dist., No. 08-1154

By FindLaw Staff on November 30, 2009 | Last updated on March 21, 2019

In an appeal from the district court's denial of a prospective intervenor's motion to intervene in a water rights dispute, the order is vacated with instructions to dismiss the motion where a proposed intervenor could not establish standing, and thus federal court jurisdiction over its motion to intervene, by "piggybacking" on the standing of an existing party to a lawsuit over which the district court had retained jurisdiction but within which there was no current, active dispute among the parties.
