Carter v. HealthPort Technologies, LLC, 15-1072

In a putative class action alleging defendants overcharged for copies of medical records, the District Court's dismissal for lack of subject matter jurisdiction is reversed where the court erred in dismissing the action pursuant to Rule 12(b)(1) for lack of standing because in light of ordinary principles of agency, the complaint's allegations that each named plaintiff through her or his counsel paid the charges demanded by defendants for providing the records and that plaintiffs bore the ultimate expense for those records, plausibly alleged that plaintiffs themselves were injured by the claimed violations of New York law.
