    I think Federal Courts should be the arbiters of what has Federal standing. I think it very jurisprudentially odd that a federal court would let state court can define federal rules for standing and that different states within the same circuit could have different answers as to whether a federal court can hear a case involving the state actor depending on whether the state's court would grant standing.

    While I agree in principle with the notion that the DI's should be able to proceed with their case (and the merit route is the best route in my opinion), the way we are getting there is crazy.
