Petition of the day
The petition of the day is:
Ticketmaster v. Stearns
Issue(s): (1) Whether, in federal court, all members of a putative class – not just the named plaintiff – must have Article III standing to sue; and (2) whether the Ninth Circuit erred in choosing to follow a state’s rule that only a named plaintiff need have standing to sue, regardless of the lack of standing of putative class members, thereby disregarding the requirements of Article III standing.
