A person’s legal right to file a lawsuit. To become involved, they must be sufficiently affected by the matter at hand and there needs to exist an actual controversy which can only resolved through litigation or some other form of legal action.

Standing in a state’s courts is determined by the state’s statutes. A common theme is that plaintiffs must be able to show that they have been harmed or that they will be harmed in the future.

Taking legal action against the federal government because a person or organization is unhappy with a government action or law is not permitted at the federal level. Only federal courts have the power to resolve genuine issues under the Constitution.
