Cuno," where the court has ruled that taxpayers have no legal right to challenge a tax incentive program that Ohio officials used to encourage DaimlerChrysler Corp. to build a new plant in Toledo, Ohio. The plaintiff alleged injury is conjectural or hypothetical because it requires speculating that elected officials will have to increase taxes to make up for the loss of revenue.
