individual congressmen do not have standing to sue, raines v. byrd, 521 U.S. 811 (1997)...

in addition the general doctrine of standing has been the subject of about 10 supreme court decisions and as i've said before most of the commentators seem to think any suit would most likely be dismissed on the basis of lack of standing...

but, this is the roberts court and corporations have feelings and other novel ideas have been the rule. so they might decide that congress does have standing, you never know...
