What does standing mean?

Let me (a constitutional law prof) try to explain

#SCOTUS #Texas
Standing asks whether the party bringing the lawsuit even has the right to sue.

It basically requires that the plaintiffs have real injuries caused by defendants that can be addressed by the courts.

#Standing #SCOTUS #TexasLawSuit #Texas #TexasCase
Technically, standing has 3 requirements:

1.Injury in fact: A imminent or actual concrete injury that affects plaintiff in a way it doesn't affect everyone else

2.Causation: The injury has to be traceable to defendant

3.Redressability: The court must be able to fix the injury
