The Supreme Court today halted a federal climate change lawsuit brought by a group of young people, handing the Trump administration at least a temporary victory in its long-running bid to knock down the case.

A trial was slated to begin 10 days from now in the U.S. District Court for the District of Oregon, where the case was filed three years ago.

In a brief order, Chief Justice John Roberts froze the discovery and trial processes. The order stayed proceedings pending responses from the parties, due Wednesday.
