Standing in Plan Challenges - Just Working in Jurisdiction Isn't Enough

In Potiris and Novack v. Dep't of Community Affairs, the 5th DCA held that simply working in a jurisdiction is insufficient to demonstrate that one does business there for standing purposes in a plan amendment challenge.

Practice tip: if you need to establish standing and don't own property, at least rent a post office box and pay occupational license fees to the jurisdiction
