On March 26, 2018, the U.S. Supreme Court denied review in a case case involving shareholders of AIG, a large financial company that received a federal loan during the 2008 financial crisis. In connection with the loan, the Government seized 80% of AIG’s shares, thereby pocketing a $20 billion profit—in addition to full repayment of the loan with interest. The shareholders contend that the seizure was not authorized by federal law and thus violated their due process rights. But despite acknowledging the plaintiffs’ Article III standing, the appeals court applied “prudential standing” principles as its basis for not permitting the lawsuit to proceed. WLF had filed a brief in the Court urging it to review the appeals court decision. The brief argued that federal courts are required to hear all cases coming within their jurisdiction.
