I don't like, or believe in the filibuster. I've argued about its useless stupidity many times.

This lawsuit is garbage. The filibuster only exists because a majority of the senate wants it to exist. The MICROSECOND that 51 senators decide not to respect the filibuster, then *poof* it'll be gone.

No one should ever take "well we got filibustered" as an acceptable answer. If the party you prefer is in power, they have the votes for what you want, no excuses, they should pass it. Any time something the majority wants is filibustered, its because they were too damned gutless and cowardly to get rid of the filibuster. There's no case here.
