‘We’re still on fast-track to trial’: Kids’ climate lawsuit against Trump administration stays alive

Read the full story in the Washington Post.

Late last week, a federal judge denied a Trump administration move to prevent a major climate change lawsuit from going to trial. The case, being brought by 21 young people against the federal government, is now closer to a full-fledged trial that will pit the Trump administration against children and young adults who insist the government is undermining their future through climate change inaction.

It’s a “very significant” decision, according to chief counsel for the plaintiffs, Julia Olson, executive director of advocacy group Our Children’s Trust. “This allows us to keep moving forward to trial.”
