An important but overlooked case due to be decided tomorrow is First American Financial Corp. v. Edwards. The case is about Article III standing. The Court is reviewing a Ninth Circuit decision that set forth a permissive approach to congressionally created standing. I expect that the Court will view the Ninth Circuit’s approach as too permissive but nevertheless conclude that the plaintiff has standing. If there were five sure votes in the opposite direction, I would have expected to see the decision before now. We shall see soon enough.
