President Barack Obama canít be sued by 10 federal lawmakers who accused him of violating the War Powers Act by ordering the attack on Libyan forces without Congressís approval, a judge said.
U.S. District Judge Reggie Walton ruled today that members of the House of Representatives failed to demonstrate that they had the right to sue executive branch officials, either as members of Congress or as taxpayers. Walton said he was ďpowerless to departĒ from previous rulings by the Supreme Court and the U.S. Court of Appeals in Washington that limit such lawsuits.
