    View Author April 2015
    On April 27, 2015, the US Supreme Court agreed to consider the question of whether Congress can create Article III standing in federal statutes by including a right to recover statutory damages even though a plaintiff has suffered no concrete harm. The Court’s decision on this standing question in Spokeo, Inc. v. Robins, No. 13-1339, could have far-reaching implications for a wide-range of businesses that are targets of consumer class action lawsuits.
