Abstract

This comment analyzes the decision by the District of Columbia Circuit Court of Appeals in the case of Campbell v. Clinton. It summarizes the rationale for the dismissal of this legislator challenge to the President's decision to order combat operations against Serbia, and analyzes how this decision ratifies the "implied consent" theory of congressional participation in war powers decisions.

Keywords: Clinton, War powers, War power
