In the unlikely event that any litigation proceeds under Texas’ SB8 law after Dobbs, a useful reference will be Perez v. McCreary, Veselka, Bragg & Allen, P.C., which found that a plaintiff’s claim under the Fair Debt Collection Act about an inaccurate demand letter failed to satisfy Article III standing requirements:
“’Congress’s creation of a statutory prohibition or obligation and a cause of action does not relieve courts of their responsibility to independently decide whether a plaintiff has suffered a concrete harm under Article III.’ Any other rule would allow Congress to grant private plaintiffs a personal stake in enforcing regulatory law and ultimately usurp the President’s Article II authority to execute the laws. And that would aggrandize our power by letting us resolve disputes that are not ‘of a Judiciary Nature.’
