The Metacon Gun Club operated an outdoor shooting range adjacent to a river, a golf course, a riding stable, several private homes, and a state park. The Simsbury-Avon Preservation Society, a corporation composed of homeowners who live adjacent to the gun club, sued Metacon, alleging that the discharge of chromium, lead, lead shot, lead bullets, ammunition fragments, and ammunition wadding had contaminated the groundwater. The members of the society depended on water resources in the vicinity of the gun club. Metacon argued that the society was not a corporation at the time it fi led the suit because the state returned its paperwork several days later due to a missing address. Thus, Metacon argued, the society was not a legal entity and did not have standing to sue. How do you think the court ruled in this case? Why?
