Citizens can sue abortion providers for alleged violations, and plaintiffs will receive $10,000 from the accused if successful. The law also impacts anyone who "aids or abets" an abortion, which could potentially include a driver who unknowingly drove a woman to an abortion clinic.
If the source is correct, what is there a general rule of thumb or reasoning that determines who can / can not litigate for said $10K in a Texas court room? Is there Federal law that governs who has standing? or is it solely at the discretion of TX law? I am trying to understand: with respect to standing, is this a state decision or does national law somehow trump state law.
