A Dáil row has been escalated to the Four Courts.
Solidarity-People Before Profit TDs Bríd Smith and Paul Murphy are seeking an injunction to prevent the Ceann Comhairle from dismissing a motion they want debated today.
The motion aims to change the rules that mean any laws proposed by the opposition have to be approved by the Taoiseach.
More than 50 such bills have been passed by the Dáil, but have gone nowhere since.

The High Court will hear the application for an injunction at 2:30pm this afternoon.
Ceann Comhairle Seán Ó Fearghaíl yesterday ruled the motion unconstitutional, which led to a row and brief suspension of the Dáil.
The Solidarity-People Before Profit motion aims to "remove the use of incidental expenses and indirect costs of implementing a Bill from the reasons that the Government can impose a 'money message'".
Yesterday, the group claimed the decision to rule out of order the proposed motion was "an attack on the Dáil's independence and democracy itself".
Dun Laoghaire TD Richard Boyd Barrett claimed the situation around their motion was "unprecedented".
