Braunstein v. Arizona Dept. of Transportation, 10-16564

In an action seeing damages based on Arizona's use of an affirmative action program in its award of a 2005 transportation engineering contract, the District Court's decision is affirmed where plaintiff lacks Article III standing, as plaintiff never demonstrated that the challenged affirmative action program affected him personally or impeded his ability to compete for subcontracting work. Award of attorneys' fees under section 1988 and the imposition of sanctions under section 1927 is reversed.
