Judge Dismisses Congressional Lawsuit Over Libya Campaign

A federal judge has dismissed a lawsuit brought by ten congressmen alleging that the United States' participation in the military campaign in Libya violated the War Powers Clause of the United States Constitution and the War Powers Resolution. The judge determined that the congressmen lacked standing to file the lawsuit since they had the ability to address the situation through legislative channels.
