The Short Book on Standing: A Practical Primer for the Practitioner



In stock

Book - softbound

The Short Book on Standing offers a nuts-and-bolts examination of the theory of standing, as well as the more practical aspects of standing. It provides a full array of situations in which standing has been at issue, highlighted with practice pointers. It also examines topics such as environmental standing, statutory standing, informational standing, competitor standing, class action standing, and taxpayer standing.

As more civil cases find their way into the federal courts, the need to control courts' dockets assumes greater significance. Challenges to a party's standing to sue or even to be sued are becoming more common. In the second quarter of 2015 alone, more than 30 cases in the DC Circuit Court of Appeals involved standing issues. The book is designed to fill the needs of practitioners who are either venturing into federal court or represent a client who has just been sued in federal court.
