Plaintiffs Novo Nordisk Inc. and Novo Nordisk Pharma, Inc. (together, “Novo”) take no position on the motion to intervene filed on March 2, 2021, by the American Hospital Association, 340B Health, America’s Essential Hospitals, Association of American Medical Colleges, Children’s Hospital Association, and American Society of Health-System Pharmacists. See ECF No. 20.

If the Court allows the movant-intervenors to participate in this case, however, Novo requests that the Court ensure that their participation does not interfere with the expeditious and efficient resolution of the issues raised in Novo’s complaint.
