Various members of Congress on both sides of the aisle have complained that President Barack Obama has failed to seek congressional authority for our attacks on Libya as required by the War Powers Resolution. And Reps. Dennis Kucinich, D-Ohio, and Walter Jones, R-N.C., are slated to file a lawsuit Wednesday related to that complaint, The Hill reports.

Kucinich released a statement Tuesday night saying that other congressmen would join the legal action. The bipartisan duo has argued that Obama has violated the War Powers Resolution.

Earlier this month, the House approved a resolution asking for details of the military attack in Libya by the end of this week. Many in Congress maintain that is the deadline by which U.S. troops must withdraw if the administration hasn’t obtained congressional approval.
