Can someone please explain the difference between standing and ripeness?

Postby LawSchoolGeeky » Sat Nov 11, 2017 8:23 pm

My con law professor is really bad at making things clear and when I ask him questions I end up confused. I'm having trouble understanding the difference between standing and the "injury" requirement and ripeness. My prof used the case of LA v. Lyons as a ripeness example yet in many of my supplements it is used as a standing example. Does someone understand this that can explain it a little more clearly?

standing: is the appropriate parrty bringing suit. Ripeness: if the suit being brought at an the right moment for judicial relief

Amazing. This is so much better than how my prof explained it and makes sense to me now. Thank you!
