Pension, Patent Rights at Stake in Supreme Court Case
Alison Frankel via ReutersLink to more items from this source
Sept. 29, 2015

"The Spokeo case presents the question of whether Congress can confer constitutional standing on plaintiffs who have not suffered a concrete injury by authorizing private rights of action for violations of federal statutes.... If Spokeo wins the broad holding its lawyers ... are advocating, class actions under all sorts of consumer and civil rights statutes ... will be endangered.... The nonprofit Pension Rights Center argued in its amicus brief that if the Supreme Court decides Congress can't confer constitutional standing, pensioners may lose their right to sue under ERISA, 'thus preventing them from remedying alleged fiduciary breaches or other violations of their statutory rights or enforcing reporting, disclosure, vesting and funding obligations.' " [Spokeo, Inc. v. Robins, No. 13-1339 (cert. pet. granted Apr. 27, 2015; argument sched. Nov. 2, 2015)]
