(2) Disposition of the case will, as a practical matter, likely impair or impede the
entity's ability to protect that interest.
(3) The entity's interest is not adequately represented by the existing parties.
(4) The intervention will not unduly delay or prejudice the adjudication of the rights
of the existing parties.

in which the entity seeks to participate in the proceedings. Any participation by an intervenor must be in the manner and by any deadline set
by the ALJ.

without regard to paragraphs (a)(1) through (3) of this section.
