The trio then sued in DC District Court to challenge the House rules.
But Judge Timothy Kelly, 트럼프 지명자, on Monday dismissed the case, saying he did not have jurisdiction. The House sergeant at arms and the House’s top administrator were protected from the court wading into the House rules because of the Constitution’s Speech or Debate Clause, the judge determined.
“여기, each challenged act of the House Officers qualifies as a legislative act,” Kelly wrote. “그러므로, the Speech or Debate Clause bars the Members’ claims.”
