The Committee may grant a petition to intervene to the extent deemed "reasonable and relevant." [Cal. Code of Regs., title 20, § 1207(c).] PetitionerŐs sole interest in seeking intervention is to obtain information disseminated in the case. We conclude that PetitionerŐs interests are relevant in this context, and, therefore, find it reasonable to grant intervention to the extent necessary to meet this limited purpose.

The Petition to Intervene is GRANTED for a limited purpose only. Petitioner shall be placed on the Proof of Service List as a Limited Purpose Intervenor to receive information disseminated in this case. As a Limited Purpose Intervenor, Petitioner may not exercise the rights of a party as set forth in Section 1712 of the Commission's regulations (Cal. Code of Regs., title 20, § 1712); specifically, Petitioner is not permitted to engage in discovery, file motions, present evidence, or cross-examine witnesses under this Order. If Petitioner wishes to participate in the proceeding with the rights of a party under Section 1712, a new Petition requesting such status must be filed with the Committee.
