capacity to be sued
Explanation:
A dictionary definition of capacity is a person’s mental ability to understand the nature and consequences of his or her actions. In court, capacity means that a person is free of all legal disabilities. Legal disabilities are not the same as physical disabilities. Legal disabilities usually involve being under age or being insane. A person must have legal capacity in order to go in front of, or be brought into, court.
Capacity to sue is often confused with standing to sue. Standing to sue means that a person has enough of a legal interest in an event that requires court resolution to allow that person to file suit. To have standing to sue, a person must be wronged or accused of wrongdoing. Therefore, even if a person has standing to sue, they may not have the capacity to sue. For example, a person charged with murder has standing to be in court since he is accused of wrongdoing. However, if that person is found to be criminally insane, he lacks the capacity to be sued
