The Structure of Standing at 25 – Tuscaloosa, AL

Written by OSULEGALSCHOLARSHIP   // November 29, 2012   // Comments Off

University of Alabama School of Law will host The Structure of Standing at 25 on February 22, 2013.

The symposium is framed as a tribute to Judge William A. Fletcher of the U.S. Court of Appeals of the Ninth Circuit, whose groundbreaking article “The Structure of Standing” was published nearly 25 years ago. Judge Fletcher made a devastating critique of standing doctrine in that article, and yet standing-to-sue remains a controversial and crucial threshold doctrine in the federal courts, most recently playing a huge role in lawsuits challenging the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (“Obamacare”), gay marriage, and warrantless wiretapping (electronic eavesdropping) by the security agencies of the U.S. government.

Judge William A. Fletcher of the U.S. Court of Appeals of the Ninth Circuit will be the keynote speaker. Other speakers include Ernest Young, Robert Pushaw, and Elizabeth Magill.
