"This is a case about whether one chamber of Congress has the “constitutional means” to conscript the Judiciary in a political turf war with the President over the implementation of legislation. ...

The Court therefore lacks jurisdiction to hear the House’s claims and will deny its motion."— Judge Trevor McFadden
