U.S. Supreme Court Stops Climate Lawsuit by 21 Kids, Temporarily

On Friday we told you that the Trump Dept. of Justice had petitioned the U.S. Supreme Court to temporarily stop a court case from advancing to trial next week (see DOJ Asks Supreme Court to Stop Climate Lawsuit by 21 Kids). Lawyers representing a group of 21 children filed a lawsuit in 2015 that aims to force the end of using all fossil fuels in the United States, to address so called man-made global warming. That case survived numerous challenges and was set to go to trial Oct. 29 in U.S. District Court for the District of Oregon. But on Friday, U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts slapped a halt on the case and ordered both sides to give him information by Wednesday of this week. So, we have progress. Still not reason to celebrate, but moving in the right direction.
