Sierra Club argued that they had standing to sue because they were a "membership corporation with a special interest in the conservation and the sound maintenance of the national parks, game refuges and forests of the country."
as a practical matter they won the war. All any environmental group needs to assert standing in a natural resource matter is to find among their membership a single person with a particularized interest (e.g. one who hikes, hunts, fishes, or camps in or near the affected area).
they do need something more mediagenic than "Or-ca".
If they were granted person status, wouldn't they then become liable for murder?
