Example text

A plaintiff claiming injury from environmental damage must use the area affected by the challenged activity, and not an area roughly “in the vicinity” of it. See Lujan v. S. 871, 887–89 (1990). ” See Lujan v. S. 555, 565–66 (1992). In the latter case, the Court held that “some day” intentions—without any description of concrete plans, or indeed even any specification of when the “some day” would be—to visit endangered species halfway around the world did not support a finding of “actual or imminent” injury.

Reveals that the description of mootness as “standing set in a timeframe” is not comprehensive. (emphasis added) . . [A] defendant claiming that its voluntary compliance moots a case bears the formidable burden of showing that it is absolutely clear the allegedly wrongful behavior could not reasonably be expected to recur. ” Whitmore v. S. 149, 158 (1990). Thus, in Los Angeles v. S. 95 (1983), we held that a plaintiff lacked initial standing to seek an injunction against the enforcement of a police choke-hold policy because he could not credibly allege that he faced a realistic threat arising from the policy.

The Court has not attempted to draw any definitive limits on the proportion of the population of the State that must be adversely affected by the challenged behavior. Although more must be alleged than injury to an identifiable group of individual residents, the indirect effects of the injury must be considered as well in determining whether the State has alleged injury to a sufficiently substantial segment of its population. One helpful indication in determining whether an alleged injury to the health and welfare of its citizens suffices to give the State standing to sue as parens patriae is whether the injury is one that the State, if it could, would likely attempt to address through its sovereign lawmaking powers.
