  •  That won't work. (0+ / 0-)

    Individual members of Congress don't have standing on their own.  The Supreme Court has already decided that question, but I don't remember the name of the case right now.

    Adam is obviously right, though, that you can't litigate a case without a client.  Not sure who else could possibly have standing to continue the fight, but it would be weird to have what amounts to a default on an issue of such importance.
