“Filibuster challenge fails”

I missed this news last week: “Ruling that the courts have no power to do anything about it, a federal judge on Friday threw out a claim that Senate filibusters are an unconstitutional denial of majority rule.   U.S. District Judge Emmet G. Sullivan, in a forty-seven-page opinion, said none of the challengers had a right to pursue their case in court, and ruled that it would intrude on the Senate’s powers for the court to decide ‘an important and controversial issue.'”
