Part II of this Article reviews the general principles of standing and its development under the FHA. Part III explores the two forms of standing successfully employed by testers – direct injury and neighborhood standing. Additionally, Part III focuses on the Supreme Court’s conclusion in Havens Realty v. Coleman that the “any person” language in § 3604(d) of the FHA provides standing to testers, and discusses how this holding has been interpreted by circuit courts in terms of its applicability to other provisions of the FHA. Finally, Part IV examines the requirements for organizations to achieve standing. Part IV also discusses the division at the circuit court level regarding the injury-in-fact standard pronounced in Havens, and it outlines the various circuit court positions.
