Case of the Day: Gingery v. City of Glendale, 2016 U.S. App. LEXIS 14269 (9th Cir. Aug. 4, 2016)


City of Glendale in California erected a statue in a city park commemorating Comfort Women. Several Japanese Americans sued the city, claiming that the monument disrupts with federal government's foreign policy power. The district court found that the plaintiffs lacked standing.

The Circuit Court reversed, finding that the plaintiff had standing. But the Circuit Court also found that the plaintiffs failed to state a claim, and dismissed the case.


As to the matter of standing, I believe the Circuit Court got it right. But really, the court buried the lede. How does this vile lawsuit not be pointed out as vile?
