8th Circuit: Plaintiffs Lack Standing To Sue Over License Plate Reading Law

Mealey's (October 16, 2015, 2:59 PM EDT) -- ST. LOUIS — An Eighth Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals panel on Oct. 13 found that two companies that sued over the purported unconstitutionality of an Arkansas law banning the use of digital license plate recognition technology lacked standing to bring suit under Article III of the U.S. Constitution because the government official defendants had no causal connection to the plaintiffs’ claimed injury (Digital Recognition Network Inc., et al. v. Asa Hutchinson, et al., No. 14-3084, 8th Cir.; 2015 U.S. App. LEXIS 17768).
