On Friday, November 2 the United States Supreme Court denied the Trump administration’s application for stay in the landmark constitutional climate lawsuit, Juliana v. United States. The lawsuit, brought by twenty-one young Americans and supported by Our Children’s Trust, is back on track for trial.
Julia Olson, executive director and chief legal counsel of Our Children’s Trust and co-counsel for the youth plaintiffs said:
The youth of our nation won an important decision today from the Supreme Court that shows even the most powerful government in the world must follow the rules and process of litigation in our democracy. We have asked the District Court for an immediate status conference to get Juliana v. U.S. back on track for trial in the next week.
