tolerating the knowing misappropriation of state funds by state officials or employees,” as well

2-4A. Standing to sue
The court held that the Blues had standing and denied the tobacco companies’ motion to
dismiss the case. The defendants argued in part that any injury to the plaintiffs was indirect and
too remote to permit them to recover, and that it would be too difficult to determine whether the
plaintiffs’ injuries were due to the defendants’ conduct or to intervening third causes. The court
2-5A. E-Jurisdiction
The court denied Boyer’s motion to dismiss the complaint for lack of personal jurisdiction. “[T]he

important added reason: Sharman’s effective predecessor, Kazaa BV, was engaged in this very
2-8A. Standing to sue
This problem concerns standing to sue. As you read in the chapter, to have standing to sue, a
party must have a legally protected, tangible interest at stake. The party must show that he or
