U.S. Supreme Court oral argument in Spokeo, Inc. v. Robins

This pending USSC decision could conceivably add a new dimension to “constitutional standing” in foreclosure cases were a federal consumer statute is involved.  Gary

Lexology-

This morning the U.S. Supreme Court heard oral arguments in Spokeo, Inc. v. Robins, No. 13-1339. As our loyal blog readers know, this is a case that corporate counsel need to follow closely in light of the stakes for the future of class action litigation.

Spokeo arises as a putative class action brought under the Fair Credit Reporting Act (“FCRA”) and addresses one of the fundamental prerequisites to civil litigation: Does this plaintiff have standing under Article III of the U.S. Constitution to bring this case under the FCRA in the first place?  Groups on both sides of this argument have been watching this case closely (as we have noted here, here, here, and here), as the Supreme Court’s determination may have a very significant impact on consumers (as well as employees and prospective employees), employers, and the consumer reporting industry as a whole.

The question specifically presented to the Supreme Court is straight-forward — “Does a plaintiff who suffers no concrete harm, but who instead alleges only a statutory violation, have standing to bring a claim on behalf of himself or a class of individuals?”
