Thank you for your question today, I look forward to assisting you. I bring nearly 20 years of legal experience in various disciplines.
The problem with that sort of lawsuit is that, until you show them actually enforcing the rule in a way that deprives people of their rights, the court may hold the lawsuit as moot.
Courts don't like hearing cases concerning rules that might be broken. They want to deal with cases where rules are being broken.
So really, if a lawsuit is the route you'd be willing to take, break their rule. They will then either have to admit that the rule is not being enforced or they'll have to try and enforce it, and then you've got the fact that makes your case real rather than speculative.
I hate that that is how you have to do things, but courts haven't been into making declaratory judgments for a long time.
