Supreme Court Says a Claim for Nominal Damages Avoids Mootness—But When Does That Matter?
The Supreme Court’s minimum requirements for standing are that a plaintiff show an injury, traceable to defendant, that the court can redress. If at any point in a litigation, these three requirements are no longer satisfied, the case becomes moot.
In “Supreme Court Says a Claim for Nominal Damages Avoids Mootness—But When Does That Matter?” Douglas Laycock delves into the U.S. Supreme Court’s recent holding that a claim for nominal damages, standing alone, satisfies the redressability prong of these requirements: Uzuegbunam v. Preczewski, 2021 WL 850106 (March 8, 2021).
