“Standing” is a constitutional doctrine that requires plaintiffs to have been harmed by a law before they can challenge it. If the plaintiffs in a case lack standing, the case is dismissed. In this exchange, Justice Scalia questions if minority voters have actually been harmed by being put into voting districts based on racial quotas. If the Court were to find that they were not, there likely would be no way for discriminatory redistricting to be challenged in any court.
