Date Filed Document Text
November 21, 2017 Opinion or Order Filing 81 MEMORANDUM Opinion and Order: For these reasons, Frank's motions to intervene, R. 57 ; R. 66 , and to consolidate, R. 67 , are denied without prejudice. Because the parties' briefs on Frank's motion to intervene were focused on the Court's subject matter jurisdiction and contributed little to the Court's understanding of Frank's potential interest in this case; and because the Court is concerned with Berg's apparent success in evading the requirements of Ru le 23, and takes seriously Frank's contention that this case, although brought in the name of Akorn's shareholders, actually serves to injure their interests (if only derivatively); Frank is granted leave to refile his motion to intervene ( and motion to consolidate) by December 8, 2017. Should Frank refile his motion, it should focus on the issues identified by the Court in this opinion regarding his interest in this case generally. Should Frank refile his motion, Berg's oppositio n is due December 22, 2017, and Frank's reply is due January 8, 2018. If Frank does not file a motion by December 8, 2017, the Court will consider the case closed.The 11/27/2017 status date is vacated. Signed by the Honorable Thomas M. Durkin on 11/21/2017:Mailed notice(srn, )
