Where a Minnesota chiropractor received a notice indicating that he had the right to file an intervention request in a workers' compensation claim -- the chiropractor had provided some $9,000 in medical service to the claimant -- but who took no action to intervene, could not subsequently seek payment from the injured worker's settlement with the employer and its carrier, held the Supreme Court of Minnesota. The Court said the chiropractor could not collaterally attack the settlement; only an intervenor could so proceed. Since the chiropractor had not pursued intervention, he was not an "intervenor."
