Ticketmaster v. Stearns

Petition for certiorari denied on April 23, 2012
Docket No. Op. Below Argument Opinion Vote Author Term
11-983 9th Cir. N/A N/A N/A N/A OT 2011

Issue: (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.
