Defendant
 
shows
 
unto
 
this
 
Honorable
 
Court
 
as
 
follows:
 
1.
 
Plaintiffs’
 
complaint
 
fails
 
to
 
state
 
a
 
claim
 
upon
 
which
 
relief
 
may
 
 be
 
granted
 
against
 
Commissioner
 
Buckner.
 
2.
 
To
 
establish
 
standing,
 
plaintiffs
 
must
 
prove
 
(1)
 
injury
 
in
 
fact;
 
(2)
 
injury
 
must
 
 be
 
fairly
 
traceable
 
to
 
the
 
defendant’s
 
conduct;
 
and
 
(3)
 
their
 
harm
 
is
 
likely

Claims
 
against
 
Commissioner
 
Buckner
 
must
 
fail
 
 because
 
she
 
is
 
entitled
 
to
 
qualified
 
immunity.
 
Plaintiffs
 
fail
 
to
 
show
 
a
 
clearly
 
established
 
right
 
violated
 
 by
 
Commissioner
 
Buckner
 
whose
 
statutory
 
duties
 
entail
 
administration
 
of
 
a
 
welfare
 
agency.
 
“For
 
a
 
constitutional
 
right
 
to
 
 be
 
clearly
 
established,
 
its
 
contours
 
must
 
 be
 
sufficiently
 
clear
 
that
 
a
 
reasonable
 
officer
 
would
 
understand
 
that
 
what
 
he
 
is
 
doing
 
violates
 
that
 
right.”

CONSIDERED,

Court
 
to:
